The Curious Death of Vincent Van Gogh

The Curious Death of Vincent Van Gogh

Show Video

This. Week on BuzzFeed unsolved, we take a look at the death of Vincent, van Gogh long thought to be suicide. But as recent writings may suggest, may actually be, murder. Excuse. Me. What. We're gonna cover a murder on this, show, no but if a man who long, thought to have taken his own life I mean he was a bit eccentric and had a history of bodily harm so maybe people assumed, it was suicide but there are some things in here that at, least for me yeah are fairly convincing, that it may be something a little bit more sinister. Well I'm here for it what, you know about go. You. Know he's a Dutch guy paint, a lot you, know very. Dreamy cut, off his ear you did that self-portrait, you. Know yeah you do a selfie, all. Right we're done here that is case, closed. No we got him we got Monday, all. Right season, finale let's do it baby let's get into it Vincent. Willem van Gogh, was, born on March 30th. 1853. In zunda Netherlands, he, was the oldest, surviving child. Of the odorous van Gogh and Anna Carr Bendis Vincent. Would eventually have five younger siblings the, one he would formed the closest relationship with being, his brother Theo despite. His good grades Vincent. Left secondary, school before graduating at, age, 16, he began, his art career as an apprentice with goo peel and see an international. Art dealer where his uncle was a partner, Vincent, first worked for goo peel in The Hague, then in London, and finally. In Paris, where he was dismissed from the company in 1876. Two, days after, his 23rd, birthday kind, of a double-edged sword back, then because it's, neat that you can just jump into an apprenticeship, at age 16, like, yeah I'm probably gonna be a. Legend. In the art field I'll, do that you could still do that today though I feel like people start apprenticeships. Quite young but they don't really do like it's 16, yeah I remember applying, for an apprenticeship, at Warner Bros at 16 how'd that turn out I didn't get it hmm so, I hope, you're watching this now and know what you missed out on Jack Warner, Jack. In 1881. After five years of, wandering Europe, and bouncing, between dead-end jobs such, as lay preacher Vincent. Moved back in with his parents who, worried about their sons lack of direction, in life bo who had also gone to work for the art dealer goopy landsea but had risen through the ranks to become a manager began. Sending his older jobless, brother money, for. The next few years, Vincent, would move out for periods, but returned to his parents, home it's interesting because nowadays people, you know people. Get to age like 24, and they're like I just don't want to know I don't know what I want to be in life well, it is kind of funny that, he is this 19th century millennial, just, wandering, around yeah, not really sure what his purpose is and if Vincent van this is a this is an aspirational, tale for all you out there if Vincent, van Gogh is going through this similar struggle you know you can make something of yourself just out there with his brush saying.

I'll Put this on something you. Put in front of me I'll put it to it that. I feel like yeah where'd that big no, no it's probably exactly, what he said to people I'll, put the songs give me a job I'll put this on so I'll put this on something you put it in front of me I'll put it to it in 1884. Vincent, now in his 30s wanted, to start paying Theo back for all the support he had given him over the years, Vincent. Began sending his paintings to do in Paris, for him to sell unfortunately. For all parties, Vincent's. Work was not what the people of parents, were looking for I always wondered about this when it comes to famous artists, obviously it took them usually decades. To find what made them famous, wouldn't. You say that the paintings, like their early drafts when they really sucked wouldn't, those be worth more cuz it's like seeing the journey is. Worth more but the probably worth a lot like, a year one van Gogh yeah, I feel like that. When you say it that way it sounds like it should be it's a little shit yeah a little. Hmm I didn't know he had a year one Van Gogh in his house I know he was doing that well that's. Pretty good it looks like shit but you know there's. A lot of that out of there for Picasso, he's got a lot of really stuff out though Pablo, yeah. Him oh you're, not talking the other Picasso. Ted. Picasso. Over. The next five years Vincent's. Life would appear to once again be mired by folly as he started a failed art collective, and continued, his nomadic, habitation. Of Europe, during. This period however the, style now associated, with Vincent began, to take form the tones used in his paintings, began to light it he developed his characteristic. Style of using short brushstrokes, and he moved to brighter more colorful subjects. Such as portraits, often, self-portraits. And city scenes, unfortunately. For Vincent, the progress of his art happened, during a time of declining mental, health culminating. In late 1888, when Vincent famously severed, his own ear, and wrapped it up as a present. For a sex worker the, day after this eerie occurrence. Like, that one. Vincent. Was admitted to the hospital where, he stayed until early, 1889. For, the next few months Vincent struggled, with his mental health eventually, checking, himself into a psychiatric hospital, in May during. His one-year, stay at the hospital Vincent. Made some of his most famous masterpieces. In his first week there he started painting the irises, in the asylums garden while, Vincent considered, the paintings merely a study irises. Is considered, one of his most iconic pieces, the, starry night now, one of the most famous paintings in the world depicts.

The View from a window in the asylum enhanced. By Vincent's, imagination. In January. Of 1890. Theo and his wife welcomed. Their newborn, son Vincent, Willem, van Gogh, into, the world named, after the infant's uncle Vincent, sent them his famous painting almond, blossom from the hospital, as a gift for his new nephew all told, while in the asylum Vincent. Made about, 150. Paintings, and by 1890, his, work was finally being exhibited, in receiving, positive reviews I don't know if I agree with this narrative all the time where art, needs to come from this like darker place of misery or maybe like turmoil, yeah, within your head you don't need to be troubled, to make good art it, happens. But I think I think, intense emotion, or introspection. Can obviously, fuel, it yeah, like, a breakup or a death yeah but it is weird that great art is often not appreciated, when it comes out it's true why that is I mean a lot of it is you know well, maybe because like the artist, mind is more enhanced, at that moment and the world is not ready for it yet so they're ahead of me that could be after, being released from the mental hospital in Maine Vincent moved to overshare, wass an area, with other artists, not far from Paris which, allowed for him to easily visit Theo's family, in Paris, on one, such visit in July Theo, told his brother he was considering, starting his own business, this news greatly, unsettled, Vincent, who not only felt like a burden to his brother who was still supporting, Vincent but also worried, about the impact of Theo taking, this gamble, on his own finances, after lunch on July 27th. 1890. Vincent. Left the Revo Inn where he was staying in ovair with his easel and painting supplies it, was a warm evening so, the inn keepers and guests were enjoying dinner outside after. Sunset when, Vincent returned, he, shuffled past without exchanging, any words he also noted, Lee had none of the belongings, he left with and had his jacket buttoned, all the way up despite, the heat he, clutched his abdomen, and limped up the stairs to his room Gustave. Ravel the owner of the inn went, to check on Vincent, the artist was curled up in his bed and when Gustav asked him what was the matter Vincent replied quote I wounded, myself and quilt, he. Lifted his clothing to reveal a bullet, hole under, his ribs. That. Said it, is said one thing to note from this is it's. A bit odd that he would take all of his painting supplies in his easel out only to, then kill himself, and then walk back with none if they like why not just leave all that stuff in your apartment, if that was what your plan was who, knows how these things creep up on a, person that is true well we're gonna get into it more in the theories okay bill. Arrived, midday on the 28th, to find Vincent in bed smoking Vincent. Van Gogh died just after midnight cradled, by his brother after telling, him quote I want to die like this and quote, at just, 37 years, old Vincent's. Life and career was, over, leaving, behind nearly, 1300. Works of art on paper and, more than 850. Paintings, with, no autopsy, ever conducted, the, exact location, of the shooting never identified, and a five-hour period between the time he left the inn and when he returned, unaccounted, for it's, time to dive into some theories the, first and prevailing, theory is that Vincent was in trouble genius, who shot himself in a wheat field according, to aniline Revo that, then 13, year old daughter of, the inn owner Gustav quote Vincent, had gone toward the wheat field where he had painted before during.

The Afternoon, as my father understood, it Vincent, shot himself and fainted the coolness of the night revived, him on all, fours he looked for the gun to finish himself off but he could not find it then Vincent, got up and climbed down the hillside, to return to our house and quote. Hmm. Yeah, I could see that oftentimes, when people commit suicide, the weapons right there the means is right there there's usually a note it's very odd to be like shoot myself now let's go hide, this gun, yeah, I mean it's a weed field you know I don't know how dense those are but unless he tossed the gun which, maybe he did at the same time how thorough of a search do you think he's doing if he is currently bleeding. Out well you'll also come to find that no one else could find the gun either interesting. Now, do you understand why I think that's so weird, now I understand. Right. Perhaps. No one was more adamant, about this theory than Vincent himself, witnesses. Recalled Vincent, saying quote I wounded myself in the fields I shot, myself with a revolver, there and quote, he, was emphatic saying, quote do, not accuse anyone it is I who wanted, to kill myself end quote, witnesses. Did say however that Vincent appeared confused as he lay dying replying. To the police's question of did you intend to commit suicide with quote, I think, so and would Vincent. Had also in the past morbidly, joked about suicide, he once told Theo he would quote cease, to be end quote if he ever felt that he had become a burden or a nuisance, to his brother could. His fear of complicating. His soon-to-be, unemployed, brother's life have driven him to kill himself one. And while, this story is the one Vincent, seemingly wanted, the world to hear there are some glaring issues, with it for one Vincent. Was shot in the abdomen below, his ribs which is an odd position to take if he had been aiming for his heart, additionally. The fact that the bullet did not exit, Vincent's body suggests, there was some distance between Vincent, and the gun more, distance, than Vincent, could have achieved on his own it's also suspicious, that Vincent allegedly, dropped the gun so far out of reach that when he came to he, couldn't find it to finish the job, what's more if he had actually, passed out four hours after shooting himself his, wound would have been much bloodier, than it was when he returned to the inn so if he did shoot himself it would have been larger. Yeah because it had been so much time till, when he got to the inn it suggests, that it, happened sooner than he said it did or, like he was getting. His theory that he fell asleep woke back up came to the inn it would have been so much bigger yeah, so they're saying like he probably got shot right away then walked to the end which would also explain then why he carried, out his art supplies because he didn't go oh yeah getting shots in the plans today right so you know it makes sense okay apart. From the heart to explain, ballistics, no, one knows where Vincent, would have obtained, the gun revolvers. Were very rare in Auvers at the time and no, one would admit to selling, or lending Vincent, a gun the, next day no, one was able to find a gun where Vincent, purportedly, did the deed all of Vincent's painting gear too seemed to have vanished all. His painting gear yes from where he left it in the fields mm-hmm so no gun none of the paint stuff that he walked out with yeah all, the other stuff that I just mentioned do you think someone was aware that this was Vinnie's stuff and, was like I'll get a pretty penny for this feel like we would have seen it by now I mean frankly people at BuzzFeed's steal lunches out of the fridges all the time you don't think someone was just like hey free, stuff true, someone did steal some of this stuff from our set yeah some of loose stuff from around here all the more precious, props you, think we don't notice that come here curse timmy's ball is gone yeah this is this is this, is a fake this is a sham.

This Is a fake ball this isn't timmy's someone, stole Timmy's ball what if Timmy, came back and took it I thought, about that but on things you did. In addition, to the questions the physical evidence raises. Vincent, was a religious, man who condemned, suicide, calling, it wicked and a demonstration of moral, cowardice, at one, point prior to his death he even, said quote I really, do not think I am a man with such inclinations end, quote, any, time he did have thoughts of suicide, it was always by way of drowning, saying quote I can, understand people drowning, themselves end quote, suicide, is wrong I, do not understand. It it'd be pretty baller to drown. It's. Just a weird thing to just tack on as a button at the end of it yeah cuz drowning, arguably, seems like the main force but why is it more morally. Sound I've heard that it is agony, Oh God. Did, you really just sneak a prestige quote and I don't know vo also found no evidence that, Vincent, was planning on killing himself, finding, no suicide, note but, instead drafts, of letters on his desk that he surely didn't, want anyone to read with, so many loose ends in the suicide Theory it's time to look at another hypothesis. This one posited, by biographer. Steven nayfeh and Gregory, white Smith nayfeh. And spent suggest, Vincent, was shot by some local boys and that Vincent, protected, their identities, to begin, it's worth going back to get a better picture of what life was like for Vincent, in 'auvairs he, was known to be quite eccentric, and when he would approach people in the street to ask if they would sit for him most people retreated, his, appearance, didn't help matters with, wild hair ratty, clothes and you know a missing, ear as is, often the case the worst bullies, were the teenage boys they. Would pretend to be nice to the artist to gain his trust, then pull pranks on him like throwing salt in his coffee rubbing, chili pepper on a dry paintbrush Vince intended, to suck and putting, a snake in his box of painting, supplies. Boys. The. Way they are. Yeah what. A nerd god I'd love to just transport. Them here and be like hey, you know that guy who, I put. A funny snake in smile but you know you put some salt in his car, museum.

He's, He's, the museum. That you're standing in front of the museum yeah I can't believe boys would be that mean to a funny, old man I could, believe it teenage boys are the worst I remember, being obnoxious as, a team, yeah, it's inevitable, if you're pranking a stranger I find it not as funny it's just me that just means it's just me and this is me one, of the boys who would tease Vincent, was Rene secreto, who, said quote our favorite. Game was making him angry which, was easy, end quote. Look. I read his face is getting. Rene's. Older brother Gaston, was an aspiring artist who like to hear Vincent's tales of the Parisian art world, Vincent. Figured Rene was just something he had to endure in, order to have a friendship, with Gaston, Rene. Unlike, his brother had no interest, in art instead, enjoying fishing and hunting after. Seeing Buffalo Bill's Wild West, Show in Paris, Rene, came back to 'auvairs with a full outfit, of western clothes complete, with fringe coat cowboy, boots and added. A 380. Caliber pistol. Vincent. Started calling Rene Buffalo, Pihl a mispronunciation. Of, Buffalo, Bill due, to his accent, which only angered, the boy more I. Love. It I love, Vincent, getting back at him because I'm sure this guy just showed up and Van Gogh was just like oh Buffalo. Bill and it was like I. Just. Said he's puffle Oh pills. Pull. Off those pistols bins oh what. A burn walked, I love, that kid taking his hat off slamming, on the ground stomping, on it so to hear him get a little win in there, prank war I love it that's Gregg's me happy in their, book Ben go to life authors, neethu and Smith speculate, that the secretaries, quarreled. With Vincent, around a farmyard on Boucher Road they may have accidentally. Fired the gun, striking, Vincent in his abdomen, Vincent, then stumbled, back towards the end where he covered for the boys the, boys in shock at what they had done may, have collected Vincent's belongings, and fled the same destroying, what evidence might remain it seems plausible one, because he's, a sweet man yes, and clearly. He put up with his bullying for a long time so they're being very cruel to him and he's still just kind of like hey that's just how it goes a relationship. With one of the Brotherhood and that's the other thing if he's close with Gaston then maybe. He doesn't want to point. Fingers to Rene yeah cuz it's gonna ruin their life it's devastating. Thing yeah I buy, it I, think I could get behind this the theory is supported by the fact that multiple, witnesses, saw Vincent, leave the inn and head towards the hamlet of Shaban ball and not, towards the fields, where he claimed he'd been painting, that, road leads to a spot and was where Rene enjoyed fishing it's, possible, Rene and his brother met Vincent, on their way back from wass went, to a nearby farmyard, and then the boys accidentally. Shot the artist that would also make it easier for Vincent, to get back to the inn with a bullet in his stomach as opposed, to a steep mile long trek back from, the wheat fields, this, theory would explain a lot of things the suicide, story does not such, as the odd entry, point of the bullet the lack of suicide.

Note Why, Vincent, took his painting equipment to, kill himself, why all that gear and the gun could not be found and why he didn't shoot himself in the head they, don't think that Rene would, have been so upset about the cloud about the cowboy about that puffle oh yeah, that he would I would, hope not see that and that makes this story get a different, kind of turn yeah still. Sweet, of him to cover but, I really, really don't want to accept the fact that maybe Rene did shoot him on purpose in the wake of the shooting Rene Gaston, and their father left town when, they returned Rene, who rarely traveled, anywhere without his pissed, no longer had the gun when asked about it decades, later Rene, said Vincent stole it from him in the 1930s. As Vincent's, work was beginning to gain notoriety. Townspeople. Told an art historian, that young boys shot, Vincent, on accident. And that Vincent protected, their identities, for fear they'd be accused of murder still. Largely, due to Irving stones 1934. Novelization. Of Vincent's, life and death and the 1956. Movie that followed, the idea of Vincent, van Gogh being a tortured, genius who took his own life crystallized. In the public consciousness in. A story that may feel familiar for those of us in our 20s and 30s, Vincent, spent much of his life looking for a purpose, trying, to find a path that could at once fulfill himself, while also bringing joy to others, what, he didn't know at the time of his death was, that his work would be beloved by generations. Inspiring. Countless others, to pursue their life's true purpose, what, he did know at the time of his death was how that fateful, bullet found a home inside, his abdomen but. As for the rest of us that truth will remain, unsolved. Well. That's a lovely little story I got to be honest I didn't think that the alternative would. Be a little. Bit heartwarming, yeah, I would say so II would it definitely, paints a different, image completely. Of him in my mind because, I like, most of the public did think he was a tortured genius in his own life but, this paints him has a very empathetic, understanding man. The underlying theme being, human kindness yeah, not bad it's, a good thing to try take, it for a world yeah it's definitely a, good, way to, end the season Oh. See. We don't agree on anything but right now maybe we like this move so you all take a cue from this. And. We're, all gonna be golden.

Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

Thoughts on Edgar Allen Poe’s death?? I say it’s rabies.

Did u get Timmy’s ball back?

For Post Mortem - I'm just spitballin' here, but is it possible that Theo killed Vincent? Theo said Vincent had stated that if he ever became a nuisance or burden, he would kill himself (and it's likely Theo, as Vincents brother and closest friend, would've seen his dismay when he told him about his business plans) - but Vincent himself had said he frowned upon suicide and would never commit such an act... It doesn't add up. What if Theo was lying to cover up his crime? It's clear Vinny boy had one or more mental illnesses, and it's common for mental illnesses to run in families. It's a stretch, but what if Theo also had similar illnesses and was just high-functioning? He'd just become a father and had plans to start his own business. Both of those things are a lot to handle on their own, emotionally and financially, but he was also financially supporting his older brother and realistically there didn't seem to be an end in sight. If you add an unstable mental state into this equation, it could be plausible that either Theo hired someone to kill Vincent and dispose of his belongings, or that Theo killed Vincent himself. This would explain the distance between Vincent and the gun, why they couldn't tie a gun to Vincent, but most importantly it explains why Vincent claimed it was suicide - he was protecting his little brother. I would love to hear your take on this theory! #postmortem

You should do the New Bedford highway murders

They should visit the stardust ranch or the skinwalker ranch if they do hopefully they take swords

Not really a question but I'd like to think that instead of being in a place of suffering, Vincent Van Gogh was getting better in the mental hospital, which was why he could create so many beautiful artworks during that period of time. #postmortem

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network I know that he had a seemingly good relationship with his brother, but what’s the chance that the brother or someone who thought they were looking out for Vincent’s brother shot him? There’s a lot of evidence towards the teenage boys theory, but I kinda expected at least a little mention of it from Ryan, since he often presents many theories. If Vincent relied on his brother’s financial help on and off throughout their lives, and he cared for his brother very much, if his brother shot him so he wouldn’t have to give Vincent money while he was jobless during this new business venture, Vincent would try to save his brother’s skin even in death. I don’t know, just a thought. #boogara #shanehaschaoticneutralenergy

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network where do I get a (wheezes) mug? Anything from this list

I am at 10:00+ so havent seen theories part yet

He covering for his brother imho. He went with his paintings to him imho. All makes sense.

I have a theory for the #postmortem Maybe soemone was jealous of him and his art. So one day when he was painting in the fields, that person shot him and took his painting so that he could sell that as his painting. And he took the supplies away so maybe no evidence would be left and it could be possible that Vincent knew this man and thus did not turn him in. You have to test my theory *Ghoul boys*

For the #postmortem , as an artist he should of known at least basic anatomy don’t you think? Why would he shoot himself in the belly if he knows, that that is a part that wouldnt kill him immediately #Renedidit #shaniakbutaplaceinmyheartforbugara

I'm not convinced it was a murder. The 1890s weren't a time particularly known for their knowledge and sympathy for mental health issues. I'm sure Vincent was depressed, but he easily could have had something like Split Personality Disorder, or Borderline Personality Disorder, or maybe he was Bipolar. All of these could have led to an impulsive moment that lead Vincent to try to kill himself. It would explain the confusion. He could have stolen the gun from Renee before hand with this intention. If painting was my life, I'd want to leave life doing what I loved. And it's pretty hard to carry all the stuff back to the hotel with a bullet wound. A lack of suicide note is not confusing, that happens quite frequently, especially if it is more impulsive than premeditated. Lastly, I don't think he was in the wheat field at all to begin with, which explain the lack of gun, painting supplies, and how he managed to get back to town. The only thing that this doesn't explain is the distance and angle of the shot. Anyways, I think he can still be a kind and empathetic man whilst also being a tortured, mentally ill artist. Everything I've read and learned about him makes me think he was quite emotional and empathetic. I liked the concept though. #SkepticalBoogara #freerangegrasssaiditbetteranyways

Do you think the clear evidence of an accidental death has been largely ignored purely because it contradicts that “tortured artist” narrative and people like to romanticise his supposed suicide? I know lots of people who say stuff like “If van gogh was on medication or healthy, we wouldn’t have his works” which manifestly is not the case. It’s total BS. Also, Ryan, is your hair so big because it’s full of secrets? Love y’all! #Shaniac (mostly) #Postmortem #Hotdagastan #Buzzfeedunsolved

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network maybe he paid someone to shoot him! Assisted suicide?

When are Americans going to pronounce Van Gogh’s name right?

An important thing to note about Van Gogh is that his artworks were typically created during his manic episodes and not depressive, hence why he was such a prolific painter. I am glad you mentioned, albeit briefly, that the fields he was supposedly painting in were a difficult walk to make. It’s tiring as a well bodied human on a hot day, let alone with a bullet in your abdomen. Hats off to you guys for another great season.

What if rene wanted to scare vincent with the gun and he did not actually shoot and then Vincent took the gun and accidentally pulled the trigger on him.

#postmortem My theory is that what if someone talked him into this? like what if Rene spoke to him and convinced him to kill himself and offered to "help him" with it. Vincent probably didn't give him a clear answer and the boy ended up shooting him anyway, explaining Vincents questionable statement of "I wounded myself" and "I think so" when asked if he Intended to commit suicide. Vincent still being vulnerable to bullying despite all they've done to him points to him also being vulnerable to being talked into a situation like that. This also explains the disappearance of all of his equipment, Rene not wanting to get caught and stealking/hiding all of it.

But what if Vincent convinced/manipulated someone (maybe young renee) to shoot him, so that in theory it wouldn't be suicide and then he would no longer be a burden on his brother theo or have to suffer with his mental health??

What if he sold his paint stuff for a gun? That would explain the missing art supplies and I know I surely wouldn't admit to selling a gun to a man with one year who is clearly acting irrationally. He also could have used some of the (possibly) leftover cash to pay someone (a vagrant maybe? or the douchey boiz?) to shoot him, if he truly couldn't bring himself to do it. And I KNOW I surely wouldn't admit to murder, so of course, no one came forward

What if Vincent and Gaston had a lovers’ quarrel and Gaston shot him in spite?

I loved it when you guys were acting like the little a-holes. Have you two considered improv? #50.5%Boogara #49.5%Shaniac

#postmortem What would drive you guys to cut off one of your ears?

What if Van Gogh hired someone to kill him? That way it wouldn’t technically be a suicide but the end result is the same. He could have also taken his painting materials out to do one last painting before he died and the person hired to kill him could have taken it to sell.

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Vincent could have taken his painting supplies to sell so that he had some small amount of money to leave behind to repay his brother. Love the show guys #shaniac #bringbackthehotdaga

Next, death of Edgar Allan Poe please !

Zion Leach We actually have a name for that! When you’re neither a shaniac nor a boogara, you’re a shitfish! (I’m being serious; it’s from the postmortem for the Tromp family episode)

Such a minor point in the video, but the way Ryan pronounces the bully René Secrétan's name makes it sound like "ce crétin" in French, which means "this idiot." Quite accurate, in this case. Sucks for his brother Gaston, though.

But what if Gaston took Vincent's art supplies? Gaston's interested in the art just like Vincent, right? Or maybe, if Vincent did killed himself, maybe he gave away his art supplies to Gaston or to those who needed it but doesnt have enough money to buy supplies and would like to pursue something in the arts too just like him. Or idk.

what's wrong with y'all hairstyle today guys

For the #PostMortem: Vincent Van Gogh back to the Sally House Ryan geez

Van Gogh didn’t actually sever his ear for his lady, him and a colleague got into a fight and it happened then

Ryan's hair is almost as tall as his face, I dig it.

#postmortem I think Vincent was killed by his brother Theo. As Theo told Vincent of starting a business, Vincent thought of it otherwise and there could be a fight between them over this. Days later Vincent must have gone on to paint in the wheat fields where he generally paints and Theo would have shot him over there and fled with Vincent's belongings. Its a wild guess. Do you know anything about Theo after Vincent's death? Was Theo there when Vincent took his last breath? #shaniac

for post mortem I think the painting become more expensive because of it rarity and the mysterious surrounding it. One more thing, Self portrait Vincent at thumbnail look like Benedict Cumberbach or it just me?

I think you should look into Edgar Allan Poe's death next time, super super sketchy and mysterious.

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network when are you coming back? I enjoy this channel soo much.Shane and Ryan are the best. Don't leave us hanging! Lots of love to a great show, and everyone who works so hard making this the best yt show.

What happened to his severed ear? Did he ever give it to the sex worker? And if he did, did she like it?

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Loving Vincent is an amazing movie about him. They touch on the murder theory and illustrate what his final day was like.

Shane's voice sounds like a 78 year old lecturer who refuses to accept any criticism. Kidding, shane is amazing, so is Ryan. #whereisthehotdaga

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network do kurt cobain

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network do kirt cobain

#RoastMortem I wish I, like Van Gogh, could cut my ear off, so I couldn't hear Shane make his little anti-ghost comments. Love you, Ryan. Nice teeth.

If Van Gogh was establishing a relationship with Gaston then couldn’t it be possible that he gave his supplies to him as soon as the “accident” happened. Gaston may have reminded Van Gogh of his younger self. #postmortem #hiShanewavedatyouatsmallworld #stillteamBoogara

Have you guys ever considered covering the Long Island Serial Killer?

I'm really tired of the idea that a lack of a note makes a suicide suspicious. Many suicide victims don't leave notes. Many suicides are impulsive acts with no long-term planning involved at all. Even people who have long contemplated suicide don't necessarily plan the exact moment, and only act when the wrong kind of pressure gets put on them at the wrong moment. In addition, many suicidal people don't show many outward symptoms. People need to stop taking "He would never have killed himself!!" as evidence of a conspiracy. #postmortem #shaniac

Would you ever do an episode of unsolved about the Buzzfeed thieves? #boogaraforlife #loveyouguys

René had said “My favourite game was to make him angry, which was easy.” That to me, is evidence that even though Vincent was a nice guy, he wouldn’t want his murderer to get away since making him mad wasn’t hard at all. Here is my theory that answers the question “Why did Vincent not expose René?” Vincent was financially unstable and it is possible he got extra money from René’s father, for guiding their other son who was interested in art. To pay their father back, Vincent decided to not say anything against René. When the father found out about the incident, he took his sons out of town to dispose the pistol. What are your thoughts on this? #postmortem #buzzfeedunsolved

Van Gogh really was a misunderstood artist. As such, dost thou think thou can use thy skill of art and use it to create art from the soul?

#postmortem Hey guys really love your series. Question about the brother Vincent was close to, Gaston. Was he ever asked any questions on what he knew about Vincent? If they were close and spent time together, wouldn't he have known about any plans for suicide? You mentioned Rene had left with his father shortly after Vincent's death, and returned without the gun. Wouldn't he have known where his brother's pistol had gone? #loveyouguys #defashaniacbutloveyoutooRyan #can'twaitfornextseason

Is it possible that maybe someone else had shot Vincent? Perhaps it was another aspiring artist that was familiar with Vincents work and was jealous as he started receiving recognition and positive feedback. This could have fuelled their envy and in an attempt to stop Vincent from being hugely successful, they killed him. This could also explain why his painting equipment had gone missing. I was also wondering if it was possible that Vincent had made some bad ties with people he met while in the psychiatric hospital? #postmortem

I actually had an appenticship at a tattoo shop a few years ago. Basically i went in, told him i drew very well, showed him my work and got the apprenticeship. I had a lot of fun with it and think there should be more apprenticing so know what you want to do with your life. Just make sure you make money while figuring out what to do with your life. But i do think it was an accidental murder. If it waant an accident, would Van Gogh just say he didnt know who killed him? #boogara #shaneiac #deadvinney #postmortem

For postmortem-- [13:56] These draft of letters intrigue me. If they held no clue about his suicide...What were they about?

Maybe it was the sex worker he cut his ears for. He asked him/her to shoot him and gave away his art supplies. #postmortem

for the post mortem: another theory about van gogh, maybe vincent and gaston were in a relationship, explaining their closeness and vincent's desire to please rene, and rene got angry about it. seeing as gay people were even less accepted back then than they are now, i think it could be a plausible reason as to both why rene wouldve shot vincent and why vincent wouldnt have wanted to turn him in. thoughts? love you guys. excited for the next season :)

For #postmortem : Do you think Vincent shouldve told the police someone shot him (if they did do it)? Also do you think art made in this generation could someday be recognized as big as Vincent's is?

Have you heard the rumor that Vincent didn't cut his ear, it was his friend, either on accident or on purpose #postmortem #shaniac

#RoastMortem Thank the watcher this season is *so short*. Now that its finally over, we can now move on to the supernatural stuff. And see if Shane will commune with his demonic brethen. #boogara P.S. I was being ironic. I love both TrueCrime and Supernatural. But, I wanted you guys to cover Hilter's mysterious death for the finale. #StillLoveYouThough #SeeYouNextSeasonForBUNSupernatural

For #postmortem: What if Vincent said something rude to Gaston (like “you’ll never become and artist because your art sucks”) that made Gaston extremely upset to the point of shooting Vincent? And Van Gogh felt some kind of guilt for making Gaston feel like that and that’s why he didn’t say anything?

Visit the Ed and Lorraine Warren

If Vincent Van Gogh said he didn't like suicide, perhaps it was someone he had hired to kill him? It could be Vincent had paid his killer with the only thing of worth he had, either a painting or his supplies themselves. #postmortem

Roast Mortem - finally figured out who Ryan reminds me of.... Every annoying guy who thinks he's cool in highschool ever.

#postmorden I have a question about the gun. In the 1960's a farmer found a 7 MM pistol that was believed by many to be the gun that Van Gogh shot himself with. You said that the gun the bully had was a.380. do we know what type of bullet VG was killed by? The smaller caliber gun might explain why he had smaller wound. It is rumored he had a .7 MM to scare of crows. Is it possible since he was shot in the gut could he have shot himself by accident. The 7 MM was going to be auctioned a few months ago. #shaniac

This was a greag episode guys. Will next season be longer? I get you both need time to regroup and come up with new murders but it would be nice to have some more content from you guys. Love you both.

Gogan cut his off in a fight while drunk vincent though a cup out comes sward off goes ear.

For postmortem, the information about his severed ear all makes sense now. Thanks Ryan.

i really appreciate the editors this episode! the editing was gorgeous! and van gogh's best work happened when in recovery so his art came from a good place. if you guys were artists, how do you think you'd be tortured? #postmortem

Can you please do the death of Marilyn Monroe? It's super interesting

The movie Loving Vincent explains this theory so beautifully! It’s completely animated using oil paintings in his style

whens the next season???

For the #postmortem since Gaston was an aspiring artist and him and Vincent were close, maybe they have talked about Vincent's death. They may have maybe planned that Gaston would shoot Vincent. And maybe, the reason why Vincent brought all his painting stuff with him is because he gave it to Gaston for him to able to have "a head start."

For the #postmortem. I'm pretty sure Vincent has a painting of that wheat-field he supposedly shot himself in. Maybe Vincent wanted to go there and get one last painting created of one of his favorite places before he ended it. I'm also pretty sure people who are suicidal don't always have one concrete plan of how to commit suicide so maybe his grief just overcame him and he ended it immediately. P.s this episode was quite heart warming and im so excited for the next season of supernatural #Boogara #Shaniac #BUN

Come to Charleston sc!! Super haunted.

#postmortem wait wha? How did he walk back to the inn just holding his abdomen and not one of the people he passed by got curious in what he was doing then later on he was able to endure the pain for quite a long time then died cradled by his brother?

Ryan, my guy, you said sinister and I expected like cold hard murder. Then you turn up with theory 2 being accident murder and my main mans Vincent covering for local bois? What if. What if it was Murder murder? #postmortem #postmortemwiththemostportem #thatdidn'tmakeasmuchsenseasIwanteditto

Do a video of Ananda Mahidol's death

I've been doing a paid apprenticeship with an art studio for 2,3 years now. It's actually fairly common in art communitues, or like tatoos.

For the Postmortem: Why do you guys blackout some faces in some cases, but in other cases you don't? Even in well known ones, such as Jack the Ripper, the faces are blacked out, but others like The Eight Day Bride, are not. What's the deal, boys? #boogara #shanicsmorelikefooliacs #shaneisslenderman


Lol, but you should do the chuck e cheese pizza theory.

When buzzfeed unsolved runs out of crimes to cover,maybe shane & ryan would commit crimes so that they can have something to cover on BUN

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Roast mortem: Ryan should hit up paramount pictures and tell them to not bother redesigning the new sonic, just cast him instead

#postmortem What about the yellow paint that he ate?

#ROASTMORTEM Shane’s forehead is as large as my musty sandwich #Appletaters

#postmortem I think it's important to talk about him getting treatment while doing his greatest work. His art didnt necessarily come from a dark place, or came from getting better/on good days. He wasnt allowed in his studio when he was having mental breaks or in a bad place because he'd self-destruct. #shaniac #loveRyantoo

I don't find it that odd that he shot himself in an odd place. The man cut his own ear off prior so...

I thought the thumbnail was an oil painting of Benedict Cumberbatch

As much as i think that ending is a very convincing possibility and Im inclined to believe it, it is still possible that vincent van gogh was a "tortured genius" in that he struggled with his mental health. I dont think it makes sense to categorize him as either mentally ill and suicidal OR murdered.

"bully boy"

Has buzzfeed unsolved covered the case of the expedition of Percy Fawcett who disappeared together with his son in search of what he called the lost city of Z? We need them, buzzfeed!

Ryan patted Shane's shoulder 16 times

I think it was the boys that accidentally shot him. Maybe it was just to threaten him but they accidentally pulled the trigger and immediately regretted it. Vincent probably seeing the boys regret they're decision wanted to cover for them. Since he is really kind like the time he cut of his ear for the woman working in a sex area, but not as a prostitute as a cleaner who got burned marks all over her body from dog attacks. He cut off his ear to give to her maybe as a sign of he didn't want people looking at her so he wanted them to stare at him instead.

He also wore a candle hat at night.

Do Kurt Cobain

it is pronounced goth (Vincent van goth)

van gogh made his best art while getting treated and so could you! see someone about your mental health, and meet your potential

#roastmortem Sleep paralysis but it's just Shane Madej standing in the corner, chanting "look at the tears"

He cut off a lobe of his ear not all of his ear

Not a question but I think Shane is hot

please do a video on the disappearance of chandra levy

You don't have to be a troubled person to make beautiful art, but I think people with serious inner struggles always make the most powerful work.

Do the Zodiac killer! It’s actually unsolved!!! We need you two to solve it!

god i loved the backgrounds of his paintings

The biggest unsolved mystery is who stole things from the unsolved set.


Also that he disliked the idea of suicide but thought about it anyway - that happens. Depression can have a cognitive dissonance sort of thing. In your cortex you know it's wrong, but emotionally the whirlwind drowns out anything else. It's not that weird for a crazy person is what I'm saying. - a crazy person

When Ryan said season finale....i died a little inside

6:20 I think it's worth noting he was receiving treatment at this time. In a mental hospital and being treated for his mental illness, his art improved and he was able to create even more. Sorrow might be a source for good art, but depression isn't. Depression is poison.

Nice job. I think it was an accidental shooting by one or more kids. Yes...the answer to your question is yes.

Given all the information in this video, what I could believe is that he was shot accidentally, but once he was, he was okay with dying because he genuinely was depressed but thought it would be morally wrong to take his own life.

Look into the disappearance of Maud Crawford. She disappeared March, 2 1957 without a trace. She was the only female attorney to ever practice law in Camden, Arkansas. There is a book written by Beth Brickell about it and plenty of theories and strange happenings to dive into.

I was honestly disappointed by this season. It felt like most of the videos this season were just about the death of people that was never solved. Like the situations surrounding their deaths didn't seem nearly as intriguing as in the previous seasons. Also I don't really care about the mob tbh.

#RoastMordem: what is with Ryan's hair this season? It seems that every episode it gets bigger! Next thing it will be a birds nest or something ridiculous... Love the show, love you guys, but come on! #TheHairIsKillingMe #CalmDownBoogara #BUN #Postmordem #Roastmordem

"I applied at Warner Brothers!" if you really think that is even part of the real world outside of LA then you are so far removed from the reality of most people that watch this shite you produce. The twink is a complete tool

Im learning about him at school

Hey can you talk about the death of Kurt Cobain? Bc his case was so small which is odd for artists and they never did proper investigation, some say he was murdered

My favorite painter

It looks like they just photoshoped a picture of Christian Bale for the image of Van Gogh they use throughout the video

He shot himself. Some one stole his stuff. Simple.

you guys should do William Shakespeare's death because there is debate on how he truly died

why does Scott Disick look like Van Gogh?

y'all go get a copy of Loving Vincent,, don't pirate it tbh, worth every penny to get the dvd or something

hm i wonder if theyd ever do an episode on what started the Hartford circus fire? thats still unsolved right?

#postmortem #boogara #stillloveyoushane Let’s say he really did get murdered. if he really wasn’t that famous for his time, why would anyone try and murder him ? Could it possibly be related to his mental health? A possible someone causing trauma from a young age ?

Make solved

*What a True art*

When will the post mortem be posted

Hey, I know it's not about a serial killer or something but it could be very interesting if you guys could investigate about the Count of St. Germain.

release ruining history season 2 cowards

Guess you dont wanna work at Warner bros anymore :/

Not gonna lie this season was boring and they keep getting shorter

What if Theo killed him? He supported him and cared about him and did everything to keep him safe, so he just waited for the right moment to kill his brother and use him to sell his art and manipulate him? Plus, he was closest to his brother, so he knew very well what his desires and goals were. Idk just a theory.

#postmortem Did Ryan say "aparCHED" @11:58? Why can't the dude pronounce things correctly lol?!

I'm never sure if I should feel proud or ashamed that when I've mentioned that if I had been alive at the same time/area as Van Gogh, I think we would have been friends, my family and friends always immediately respond with "Yeah, you would've been right there with him... eating the yellow paint...cutting off your ear... going to the psych ward..."

note that his most iconic work came when he was getting mental help in the hospital

do one about kurt cobains death!

Oh The machine of a dream, such a clean machine With the pistons a pumpin', and the hubcaps all gleam When I'm holding your wheel All I hear is your gear With my hand on your grease gun Mmm, it's like a disease, son I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile Get a grip on my boy racer roll bar Such a thrill when your radials squeal Told my girl I'll have to forget her Rather buy me a new carburetor So she made tracks saying this is the end, now Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now When I'm holding your wheel All I hear is your gear When I'm cruisin' in overdrive Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive I'm in love with my car (love with my car), gotta feel for my automobile I'm in love with my car (love with my car), string back gloves in my automolove

#postmortem The fact that he didn’t write a suicide note is so suspicious. Vincent wrote daily to Theo, sometimes multiple times a day. Thousands of letters still exist as they were collected by Theo, and this is why so much information is currently known about Van Gogh. Letters written around 6 hours prior to his death were were undoubtedly positive and witness statements say that Vincent was content and in good health when he went out that day. He was happy to be out of the asylum, he had a new lease on life. I don’t believe that he shot himself. He was eccentric and strange, but not suicidal at that time.

VAN-GOD save us all

Why couldn't you have done this like a month ago? I did aProject on him and I could've learned everything here in 21 minutes instead of studying for it haha

Y'all should do a video on the Texas Killing Fields

this made me cry just from his being bullied he was such a nice man

Where is he van going? Cause it's definitely not pronounced that way


ryan why'd u pronounce quarelled Like That

post mortem pls answer this .....ryan's "qware elled" is haunting me

Who dares to steal timmy's ball?!?!

is there not a theory that his brother killed him? that seems most obvious to me. he had motive because he was in a financial strain and Vincent made that strain greater, plus he had proximity because he just happened to be visiting the night this happened. we just don't know if he had access to the gun. The boy said Vincent had stolen it from him. If Vincent had taken the gun, his brother could have found it in his home and used it to shoot him.

cant believe yall left out his beef with Gauguin

My name is vincent

Y'all should watch Loving, Vincent. You'll understand

Am I the only one who thought it was about Benedict Cumberbatch because of the tumbnail that looks like him? ^^'

watch. the. movie. *loving. vincent.*

Weird the Brick thing is also used in lawsuits against gun sellers and manufacturers that's why I already knew about it. Funny how it comes up so much.

this is the only good thing in buzzfeed

Oh those paps don't play if they take a photo they own it this has already been to copyright court before that's why they sue and it's usually settled. You think their bad you should see Getty go after publications yikes.

Flanan isles mystery

#postmortem it was probably be a suicide because cutting his ear off would be hard.He would have used a knife or scissors and maybe did that for a mannaquin thing.By cutting your ear off that would make you bleed a lot and their would be now way to stop it bleeding I'm sad that he died at a young age #Shaniac

Hi Ryan and Shane for the #postmortem I’ve been meaning ask about this but I didn’t have time to get to it. A couple of weeks ago I saw the Instagram video of guys texting each other from across the room because you were so mad at each other that you didn’t want to talk to one another. What was it that made you guys so mad? Btw I think you guys are hilarious and amazing so keep up the good work.

for the postmortem: why didn’t you discuss van goghs relationship with paul gauguin? i feel like its an important part of his life story, maybe gauguin killed him idk love you guys and your work #boogaraforlyfe

It’s one am why am I watching this

There's a movie of Vincent Van Gogh, called Loving Vincent, check it out guys. I loved it.

Next week on buzz feed unsolved we will be looking at the disappearance of James Charles fans.

as an art student my whole life i had to learn about Vincent Van Gogh now we all know why he chopped off of his ear. to give it to sex worker. true love folks. x

I share a birthday with the great Vincent Van Gogh.

It's pronounced .38 caliber.

#postmortem notable thing about his declining mental health, he painted with lead paint which we now know, is not so good for that sort of thing

the unsolved murders at hinterkaifeck. Plz do

How can y’all make an artist’s backstory scary??

Quien está aquí por anuel I karol g “dices que te vas “

I think he might have been schizophrenic

Let’s all remember how Vincent used to drink yellow paint to make himself happier

For #roastmortem Shane's eyebrows almost look like a Disney villain's, Either Ryan's hairline is slowly receding or his forehead is getting bigger, if it keeps going he won't be able to make jokes about Shane's head being the size of the sun.

love these episodes, y’all should do an episode about Morgan Nick from Arkansas

Maybe his brother needed money and thought to sell all his paintings but it didn’t work and Vincent didn’t want his brother to get in trouble because of all he did for him?? #spookeyboyz

⚘ rest in paradise ....⚘

#postmortem the unsolved mystery I always wondered about is how that sex worker reacted to receiving an ear as a gift, you know?

Why does Vincent Van Gogh lowkey kinda look like Benedict Cumberbatch in the thumbnail?

what is your favourite Van Gogh painting? #PostMortem

What’s up with Shane’s hair? I think I love it.

According to the film Loving Vincent; René Secrétan claimed on his death bed that his revolver (which was apart of his Wild West outfit) was stolen by the artist Vincent Van Gogh.

Warren brothers listen up lol

Where are the supernatural episodes ;-;

Kurt Cobain’s death

Yeah apprenticeships are mostly taken by people under 20 because they're paid really badly and, in the UK at least, they're counted as a kind of education so you don't have to stick around forsixth form Edit: Van Gogh didn't paint those amazing things because he was mentally ill, he painted them cause he was recovering and getting meds/therapy

Anyone gonna talk about the mannequin behind shane?

Why does the thumbnail look like Benedict Cumberbatch


I feel like Phoenix Wright while watching these.

loving that wheeze mug

O my god. Just as I think i cant have more compassion toward vincent

“This week on Buzzfeed Unsolved, we’ll discuss about the miserable disappearance of James Charles’s career.”

Didn’t he cut his ear for Gauguin?

I know the story about the prostitute is interesting, but I believe he cut off his ear because he got into a fight with one of his only friend. The friend made the remark that Vincent never listened and so he cut off his ear to show that he would listen now. I think this is a lot sadder, but I believe this is the true story.

Edgar Allen Poe next?

what if vincent was teaching rene to shoot a gun then rene accedentaly shoots vincent

In a book about Vincent's life that I read, it stated that he cut his ear while he was having an episode. He had very violent episodes and one time, his cousin had to fight him off when Vincent was waving around a knife. It was an accident. I don't know if he DID give the ear to a sex worker afterwards tho.

this episode came out the day of my apush exam and for that sad reason i was fated to miss this episode until now

What was left out is Gogh wanted to poison himself (based off his physician’s medical reports). Paint and turpentine

they manage to make literally anything creepy as hell

Can you please cover the Toyah murder in cairns, Australia?? Its still unsolved!

the real crime here is how they butcher the GOGH pronunciation

bro y’all should check out that forest in indonesia

the way they pronounced gogh...

So I’m seeing comments about James Charles and Tati drama while buzz feed talks about this there basically the same both of the artists carriers ended

Working in the fine art market, it always a great thing to see the names of Old Masters embedded into popular culture! This man truly was one of the worlds greatest treasures. He lived such a misery-filled life that its not surprising he took the route he did. Since his death, most of his works have gone upwards of 40 million dollars, which I have no words for/

Whatever music that was playing in the background around the time 11:00 was really stressing me out. I don't know why but it was like the back of my brain was silently freaking out.

Invents Time Machine follows him for last five days ...

It’s sad he should’ve had a girlfriend or a boyfriend like besides his brother

#Postmortem #roastmortem “ I can’t believe boys would be that mean to a funny old man” uhhhhh Shane sweetie Van Gogh was only 38 LOL if that makes him an old man then I’m assuming you & I don’t have much more life to look forward to

Just so you know the thing about the sex worker is not true. The real story is he cut his ear off for a much sweeter and beautiful reason so there was a bartender and what happened was she was in a terrible terrible fire which scarred her severely and everybody was just awful to her and so to try to put himself in her shoes he cut off his ear so he could scar himself so she could know that she was not alone

Wow!! This is an awesome episode. Thanks so much guys!! All episodes are great but this one is especially awesome for art lovers and history nerds

You guys should really take a crack at the case of Michael L. Rosenblum. It's not covered on youtube very much so few people know about it but it's one hell of a twisty ride.

The best art comes from the dark places of the mind. Just look at HR Giger's work

Do a video about the death of hitler

he looks like benedict cumberbatch on the thumbnail

You should do the lead masks case

ultra instinct at 11:08

9:18 mhhh "coolness of the night" but i thought you said his jacket was buttoned up all the way even to it was "very hot"

Maybe he hired someone to kill him

Do highway of tears canada

i haven't even played the video yet but i know for a FACT ryan's gonna bring up aliens because starry night could maybe kinda sorta possibly look like ufos

my favourite exploration into van gogh has to be Dr. Who's 'Vincent and the Doctor'. It's so emotional, but really puts his feelings into account.

I think its important to remember that his best work was when he was getting help. A note to fellow people who struggle with mental health, you are worth getting help for. Getting help doesn't damper who you are, it helps you be your entire self without the weight of mental illness

the van gogh in the thumbnail looks like benedict cumberbatch

Call me “crazy” but anyone thinks “maybe” the sex worker he gifted his ear to might have had a “significant-other?”. I’m just saying

Do the lead mask case

They always play the same song when they get into the theories

Ive been waiting for this case to be covered, yay!

“Edgar A. Poe” another mysterious death

14:17 lemme just go ahead and say that if some local boys shot me, I would not protect their identities

Am I the only one who thinks someone tried to kill him then take his painting and tried and sell it?

#postmortem Not to put a downer on your little thing Ryan but... Van Vogh died without seen his success and not seeing how his art made history and influence a lot of other people in that time and to this day. I get what your saying but I wanna see how I make something of myself and probably be someone worth remembering. I love you guys and keep up the astonishing work, can't wait for more. #boogara #unsolved #ghoulboys

What's your opinion of the Van Gogh Doctor Who episode?

Here for the only Buzzfeed content I enjoy.

I don't think it's weird that he brought his painting supplies with him. If he did go out to commit suicide, he probably wanted to maybe paint one last thing. Painting was one of the only things that made him feel happy. When I attempted, I brought my stuffed dog with me. Had it since I was little. It's always been my comfort, and the thought of having him in my arms while I fell asleep for the last time, was what I wanted.

Commenting at 15:02 literally the same teenage boys as at 2002.

if the René/Gaston Secrétan theory was true, another reason he would protect René for the sake of Gaston would be if he saw himself and Theo in their relationship, and didn’t want to separate them any more than he would want to be separated from Theo. What I mean is this man’s most meaningful and important relationship was with his brother, so he probably wouldn’t want to interfere or affect another pair of brothers.

I think a point that was missed about the "tortured artist" narrative was that van gogh was *receiving treatment* when he made some of his best work. he was not creating his greatest work at the height of his turmoil, but during a break from it. intense emotions can inspire great art, but instability makes it extremely difficult to actually apply those feelings. had he gone untreated, I doubt that van gogh would have created anything comparable to starry night or irises.

Hey I'm a very amature art enthusiast and, YES! Yes artists earlier works are in fact very much more valuable for their historical value!!

don't quote me on that though. you cant quote anyone on anything for Vincent because a lot of the knowledge of him is warped. theres not much verifying anything for him?

ALSO the ear thing isn't the whole truth. He did cut it off and give it to a sex worker but he initially wanted to give it to gauguin who was his art hero. Gauguin was the original reason why vincent started painting sunflowers, they were presents.

You guys should do a true crime episode about the anthrax scare

Commenting at 4:57 they didn't tell it was a sex worker in art class in middle school. They said she was a woman he was interested in.

I lost it when Shane suggested Timmy took the ball and then laughed at Ryan when he admitted that he had already considered that as a possibility.

heathers in van goghs time?

Why would he say "I wounded myself" if it wasn't suicide? Do you think if he was murdered (Not by the boys) that he was so far gone into mental illness that he was just confused and thought he himself had done it? #postmortem Also which of you would be more likely to give your ear to a sex worker?

The season finale? Nooooo!!

#postmortem While the last theory is almost as likely, I do think he intended on dying (/committed suicide) because of how he walked back to his room without asking for medical attention to try to stay alive. His confusion about his suicide as police questioned him could be due to blood loss. Also: - stuff in wheat fields are hard to find (gun likely lost) - unfinished suicide notes point to suicidal thoughts’ presence, and maybe he committed suicide while painting in a moment of creator’s-block-caused frustration. It’s not uncommon for suicide to be done on impulse as a result of a culmination of mental illness and emotional strains. And creator’s block can be very frustrating and facilitate thoughts of inferiority.

"cease to be if he ever felt like a burden" ok relatable

Can u guys investigate the murder of Robert Kennedy?

When you’re Dutch and they’ve been saying that Vincent might’ve been murdered for quite a few years now



Please please do the Nixon watergate scandal!!!!

what a beautifully kind hearted man. true or not this will forever b the VVG i see when i thinl of him. not the crazy self mutilating girl crazy psycho

Go to the haunted nazi camp in Germany

Is this actually the season finale? I feel like it just started. These videos are too good to already be over.

i always thought that the theory about the accidental shooting and him covering it up was true. i never knew that he had supposedly “killed himself”

I think for your next season when it comes around you guys should do something relating to famous singers death. For example, Elvis Presley produced a lot of great music and has passsed away but I was always confused on how he died. Some said drugs, some said her was overweight, some said heart attack, some said he had to many meds. Michael Jackson is another one that died suspiciously, I know that they pointed out the doctor but I think a episode on him and his passing will also be interesting. You can also do a episode on Whitney Houston!

Vincent was getting treated when he made his most famous paintings. I think that's a point to how treatment can help and prove suffering isn't needed all the time to create beautiful art.

1 like=1 (wheeze)

Hearing him say zundert makes me uncomfortable


He was a tortured genius while also being an empathetic, understanding man. He was incredibly depressed, had a history of self harm, drank heavily, and was in mental pain constantly. But he also had a strong relationship with his brother, worked with other artists throughout his life, and even lived with another artist- Gauguin- for a short time. He wanted help, and voluntarily admitted himself to a psychiatric institution. He wanted to be closer to people, writing in a letter to Theo in 1897, "Like everyone else, I have need of relationships of friendship or affection or trusting companionship, and am not like a street pump or lamp-post..." Him being sick doesn't mean that he was always a selfish, mean person. He just needed more help than he was getting.

Studies show only 15-38% of people leave suicide notes, so that explains why he didn't leave one. It's only seen as common because it's a bit of a movie/ tv trope.

you should do the disappearance of madeleine mcCann

POST MORTEM - what if he wanted to kill himself, but didn't think he would be able to go through with it. so he asked his BROTHER (or maybe even the boys) to do it for him.

Oh I got a good one, Was Adam Ellis claim about Dear David B.S or was he actually being haunted.

July 27 is my birthday I never knew that Van Gogh was shot that day

Shane looks worse than my cats puke #bugara #roastmortem #shaniacs #buzzfeedunsold

"Parissss-ian" "quay-rreled" ryan ur doing ur best sweetie

My friend got an apprenticeship with a tattoo artist at age 17

hahaha SHANE can you not get massages because your fat head can’t fit in the facehole!! OHHHH ROASTED BABY #areyouapotatocozyoujustgotROASTED #shaniac #roastmortem #postmortem #buzzfeedunsolved

I always felt that I'm jus so happy he had his brother at the very least.


Do the Lindburgh Baby

why do Shane’s eyes always look like he’s had a severe allergic reaction??? #shaniac #roastmortem #postmortem #buzzfeedunsolved

For your supernatural series, PLEASE do the Lemp Mansion in St. Louis, MO... A wealthy family of beer tycoons lived in that mansion, and there was a lot of death and suicide in that house. Supposedly the family haunts it to this day

As a dutch person, the way they pronounce van gogh hurts me physically

Can you guys do Tesla

This made me so sad, that poor man.

hi not relevant at all but yes here in austria you start an apprenticeship with 14 or 15 - I was 17 though hah

Starry starry night, paint your pallet blue and gray.

feels weird hearing my name so much

All the dutchies out here shaking

His mental state sounds like the much less successful version of me in college

Firstly. He only cut off part of his ear. Secondly. He had an older brother who had the same name as him who died and had a headstone outside there house.

Why do people keep saying 'go' instead of 'goGH'? There's a couple of videos on here where Vincent's name is pronounced correctly. It just grinds my gears when people say names wrong, I find it a bit disrespectful

This pair is difficult to listen to. Interest has been lost. Let me outta here...!

Vincent van Gogh was Dutch, so his name is pronounced as Vincent van ‘Gock’ not ‘Go’

At least he was able to see how much his beloved work touched people and his impact on the art world before he died...thanks to the Doctor and Amy.

vincent van *gone*

so much respect for this person!

He killed him self

9:58 these few seconds are now saved in my phone.

Edgar Allan Poe !!!

I just did an art history presentation and some boys playing in the same wheat field found the gun recently and it's being sold as art. It was apparently originally the inn keeper's so the boys turned it in to the inn keepers who are the family of the same keepers Vincent would have interacted with. I might be misinformed but here's some extra possible facts

Year 1 Van Gogh sounds like a rookie year Gale Sayers card

i cant be the only one who thought about theo trying to kill him off, idk why i just got this feeling because a) vincent would've never snitched on his brother b) vincent already had suicidal tendencies c) he felt like a burden to his brother theo d) theo might've felt the way vincent was unhappy with his life and wanted to help him by killing him (so vincent doesnt have to commit suicide) e) theo could've turned the story around because the hosts trusted him f) theo was rich enough to get a revolver what do y'all think?? its 5 am and i havent had a blink of sleep, maybe thats why im going crazy with these theories! stan bts!

Excellent video as always! You should cover the Crazy Brabant Killers. It’s a very interesting case from 1980s Belgium with a lot of theories about who they were and why they committed all those terrible murders/robberies. There have been some interesting updates on the investigation in recent years as well


*”Season Finale”? Really? Is there a reason that the seasons have gone from twelve episodes to eight?*

16:07 the way he says parisian... is this the new february?

maybe he made a deal with someone to shoot him and gave them his supplies...

I know there are probably already comments about this but you guys need to watch Loving Vincent! It's a beautiful movie and is just so touching. It's entirely made of oil paintings stop-motion style.

Can't believe we got another story with a naughty boy motivated by cowboy-worship. Also, as far as the idea that art comes from someone being "tortured," you'll notice that one of his most prolific periods was when he was hospitalized, in other words, a time when he was under treatment and his mental health was improving as a result.

Why isn’t anyone talking about teenage boys pranking Vincent Van gosh

I actually think that he paid or asked someone to do it for him

If you liked this video (which I did) you should watch the movie "Loving Vincent". The animation is so beautifully done, as it's reminiscent of Van Gogh's style of painting, and the story is so heart wrenching.

I believe Shane and Ryan were both obnoxious teens ( Shane was the big nerd in school).

You should do the Disappearance of Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt for next season!

can you look into yesenin’s death??

He probably sold his belongings to buy a gun

Shane is compassionate. A lot of people overlook this trait of his, but he is.

Ryan is really smart. I love his commentary. He's very eloquent!

Painting is pain. That's why pain is in painting.

*can I pay shayne to be at my birthday?*

Wait, I thought Van Gough had consumed yellow paint or something to commit suicide? Or am I thinking about something else?

Actually the story of Vincent cutting his ear off was a story made up by him. His friend somehow cut his ear off by accident and Vincent said he cut his own ear off to protect his friend. That was what I was taught at school.

am I the only one who still gets freaked out of that black suit wearing guy doll in the back of shane??

He basically killed himself in my birthday:/ or was it murder idk

Awesome episode


I’m confused, do they do paranormal investigations on another channel? I thought they did it on this channel. If anyone could tell me I would really appreciate it!

why does the thumbnail look like benedict cucumberpatch

Why does Van Gogh look like Benedict Cumberbatch on the cover of this video Idk what the word for the front of the video is


Ik it's kinda a small thing but his name is pronounced like hoh not go

Ryan’s hair

can you do merriwether lewis

I’m not sure I’m going to be able to watch this with the butchering of Van Gogh I’m going to try power through but I might not make it! Why do Americans pronounce it wrong?

Am I the only one who thought of doctor who...

You got one of your facts wrong Vincent van Gogh did not cut off is what ear his friend cut it off his friend was a duelist and he gave that story so his friend would not be arrested

Do the FPS Russia murder. Deals with YouTube, guns, and the US government

the snake bit the artist

That boy REné killed him. He had a gun, and he hated Vincent. Vincent must've probably pissed the boy off and yeah.. Maybe the reason why Vincent didn't expose him was because René had threatened to hurt his brother or nephew. Am I reachhing?

is there another season??

I hope Timmy is haunting the person who stole his ball


Do one at Pearl Harbor

I was actually just talking about how I loved Van Gogh’s style and how I feel inspired by his art. I hope he’s watching all of his admirers and feels at peace.

If you can cut off your own ear, you can kill yourself.

*A day after this Eary occurrence*

I've always greatly admired Van Gogh, and his life story and paintings have been a source of support from me. I think it's important to highlight that the period where his most famous paintings come from was the time where he went to SEEK HELP ans actually get treatment for his own mental health!

At the van gogh's museum today in Amsterdam ❤

Man, this story just reminds me about my seething hate for teenagers. Im down for the "Puffalo Pill" theory. Never knew any of this and also thought he commitment suicide.

Ik ben de nederlandse comment, waar nederlanders naar zoeken

Anyone else notice that van Gogh's portrait in the thumbnail looks uncannily like Benedict Cumberbatch??

I visited the asylum when I went to France in 2017 and that garden was really pretty

Why didn’t you mention the time he spent with Gauguin? They lived together and their relationship went from to love to hate.

Please do the Sunny Von Bulow case!!! It's astounding how Claus Von Bulow won the appeal

4:50 it was ear lope not the whole ear (I may be wrong but here we are)

I just wanted to put it out there that in actual fact most suicide victims do not leave a note. It’s estimated that only around 25 - 30% of victims leave a note so its actually not uncommon at all to not find a note accompanying a suicide.


I think the physical evidence of the ballistics, not being able to find the gun etc is strange but I wouldn't say him taking his art supplies out to the field and giving up searching for the gun after he was shot is evidence that it wasn't suicide. I have mental health issues and I know a bad mood swing can catch you at a totally random time and a lot of my behaviour would seem bizarre and unexplainable to a neurotypical person.

Watching this after re-watching the movie "Loving, Vincent"... Same theory but after watching that good but heart-aching movie, I like the funny approach of this.

ok, i cant be the only one who thinks that the thumbnail vincent looks exactly like my boy Bennidict Cumberbatch

We didn’t learn in school his love was a sex worker. The more you know

He was on digitalis, which made him see visual aberrations, particularly green-yellow aberrations. This inspired the paintings

Funny that i just live less then a kilometer from bavaria HQ and under 10 from the vincent van gogh village hahaa

I love u but ur pronunciation is absolute trash

I cant handle how y’all pronounce both “van Gogh” and “Zundert”

*I'm going to cry*

In Switzerland people are mostly between 15 and 16 when they applied for their 2 to 4 year long apprenticeship. Therefore him being young and having an apprenticeship is quite normal in Europe in general

I thought I knew everything about Van Gogh, I'm kind of siding with the murder idea, it's a shame it's so rarely mentioned.

Is that a maniquinn in the back?

Tons of kids leave school at 16 and do apprenticeships where I live in Scotland

Y’all should do the mysterious disappearance of all of James Charles subscribers

Ok idk if this makes sense but like could he have propped the gun on his easel and with a piece of string pulled the trigger??Whilst the gun was pulled by the string it fell off the easel aiming the bullet in an odd place and therefore the gun landing on the floor in an unknown place which Vincent couldn’t find??

I always thought that he died by bleeding to death after he cut off his ear.

How have you got made a video on Robert Johnson yet

The boys are back

why don't you gyz cover the death of marilyn monroe

What if his brother killed him bec he wanted all the money he knew would come from Vinnys paintings considering he was trying to start a new business

Fuk the music

8:10 those supplies could have been more sentimental to him and he might have not wanted others to find it or display it.

He was making his art while he was trying to get better, which I think is a good lesson for artists! Emotions will fuel your work but you'll be able to work way better after you feel like you're in a good place in life!

Poor Vincent Van Gogh!

Van Gogh’s emotional turmoil did not fuel his beautiful art. He actually only ever painted when he was doing better. He was a great artist not because he painted from his problems, but be cause he painted IN SPITE of them.

every time they say van go my soul dies a little

I once stayed in the same room Van Gogh “killed himself” it was freakyyyyyy

There’s something really entertaining about Shane saying “boy”

Vincent was just a gentle soul who would eat yellow paint because he thought that would make him happy

4:56 I can't believe Shane pulled a Greg's Kitchen on us

Why do I get a Benedict Cumberbatch vibe from Vincent van Gogh from the video thumbnail? Well, just a random thought Haha

Buzzfeed is a plague that needs to be yeeted out of this Earth

Little did the mean boys know, his painting came to worth more than their life ( money wise )

You can't do apprenticeships with artists anymore. At least not legally I think

Maybe his own brother shot him because he WAS turning Into a burden and because Vincent loved his brother so much, he covered up for him and he cleaned everything up and claimed suicide

He was a good man!

Do an episode about Edgar Allan Poe

I dont know why, but everytime they show Van Gogh's face it gives me the heebie jeebies. those eyes man,,,

Why was such a talented man going through so many hard times?

Yo I started my apprenticeship at 14

How do you just assume something is suicide?

How about the "suicide" of Meriwether Lewis? (as in Lewis and Clark) he "shot himself" twice in the chest with a flintlock

Why didn’t he go to the hospital?

You have no idea how many people paused this to have a good cry while watching Doctor Who.

i feel like sections of this video could be summed up with "Vincent Van Gogh is believed to have suffered from schizophrenia" lmao but it was a fun watch. I'm still pretty sure he killed himself, but it was fun to learn about. (i mean the probable schizophrenia can explain quite a few of the details around his death, like the confusion-psychotic break, hallucinations, delusions etc could have lead him to shoot himself and then be a little confused as to why after the fact. Also explains taking the painting supplies etc. Doesn't explain everything, and either way he was dealing with mental health issues, but yeah)

You do NOT shoot yourself in the side under the ribs! That is the stupidest thing Ive ever heard!!

is this just me or Shane kinda looks like Van Gogh.........


Did i hear that this is season finale?

everyone should watch the movie loving vincent

Where’s the new episode

why does the man on the thumbnail look like benedict cumberbatch

I have watched this channel for so long, but that mannequin in the back somehow always startled me.

Imagine the final painting he was doing was found with Rene and Vinces dna on it ahaha would be priceless

They should do Kurt Cobain

Probably shot himself, passed out a little, some vagabonds watching from a distance took all his crap so he got hungry and decided to go back to the hotel.

do aliens next season

Lolllll. All of this information is wrong. But ok. Interesting. I still like y’all cause you’re funny.

His style is post-Impressionism, which was not accepted during Vincent’s time because it contradicted classical French impression

Also, he only sold one painting during his lifetime

Vincent didn’t cut off his ear for no reason, and he didn’t actually give it to a sex worker. He had an intense ear pain, so awful he thought the only way to get rid of it was to get rid of his ear all together. And giving it to a sex worker was made up

He looks like Benedict Cumberbatch in the thumbnail.

0:15 Keep taping I think he murdered him

Y'all should do the "Killing Fields" in League City, Texas for true crime or supernatural!

I never expected BuzzFeed to cover Vincent Van Gogh but I’m grateful for it!!! Imo he was shot by rené and I Guess you should watch movies like “loving Vincent” and “at eternity’s gate” cuz it really shows how much he struggled in life. Both movies also explore the theory of rené shooting him

Did they mention he had schizophrenia?

That's wack! I love this though. What a great man!!

I love the effect they did at the beginning, how they made some of the video look like his painting style.

what about him drinking yellow paint?

The reason why some works of the artist don't have a higher value is the lack of documentation. Often than not in the art world the price of a painting is determined by a group of people who have studied the style and life of the artist. There are always varying opinions. A big example of this is salvator mundi. For years it has been known as attributed to leonardo da vinci and not by work of da vinci himself

You guys talk about how you don't like the narrative of art coming from a place of misery and turmoil, but I don't think that's Vincent's story. If he's in an asylum, he has to be getting help for his problems and is presumably in a better mental place, and I see it as his increasing mental health helping him to make all these masterpieces. #postmortem ps sorry that's not really a question just an observation lol

this is the only thing I like from buzzfeed

0:35 what you know about gogh what you what you know bout gogh

13:33 when the employer tells you a joke that you know wasn't funny but you need the job

Is this the finale ?

kurt cobain would be a cool video

BREAKING NEWS: According to TMZ, Shane Madej and Ryan Bergara reportedly were rushed to the hospital due to severe back pains caused by carrying the entire Buzzfeed Company. We wish them a speedy recovery.

you guys should do Shakespeare's death next

might need a new haircut bro lmao

They made a movie about this guy last year it’s called, At Eternity’s Gate

you guys should look into the Salish Sea human foot least 20 detached feet, usually found in sneakers or boots washed up on the shores in BC and Washington

For those wondering about the ear: The worker in question was a sex-worker/barmaid whos face had been marred by an attack by i believe a dog, and so people often made fun of her and causing her to work at the brothel to pay off her medical bills. Van Gogh quite like the young woman, and either cut it off to either an attempt to heal her or just to show that you don't have to be perfect something like that

If you notice, most famous paintimgs never got recognition until a tragic story could be tethered to it. The name is what sells, this is why blank canvases can be sold for half a million dollars.


ahhh when will season 6 beginnnnnn

Puffalo pill and his caliber bistol ahahahah

when will u guys do elizabeth bathory no one gunna make the joke about how his name was really pronounced? No? okay

Why do people act like no other generation has felt anxiety about what they are going to do with the rest of thier lives? That's some real heavy sh*T man.

Perhaps he asked someone to shoot him?

i think his brother shot him and he did not wont him to go to jail so he said he shot him self

I really hope they won't end buzzfeed unsolved TmT i really like it and i find it very interesting :")

I’ve learned more from you guys then from my dutch teachers so I guess you did a great job telling Vincent van Goghs story

Vincent: puffalo pill ?? *kids laugh* Rene:

if anyone is interested, they left out a HUGE theory and several parts of vincent’s life. look up his relationship with dr. Gachet! it’s very interesting, i just wrote a research essay about this

if you want to watch an amazing movie about him, i recommend Loving Vincent. it is incredible movie, W A T C H I T

What a beautiful soul.

Is it just me or does that mannequin in the corner sometimes look like it is moving?

Do you think he got shot by the boys and then just went with it because he was planning on committing suicide anyways? I only ask because he had just learned of his brothers Financial situation, which he had said would be the only thing to lead him to suicide, and they found what sound like questionable letters on his desk?!?!?! You guys are the best,you’re both great! But Shane is my favorite! ❤️❤️❤️

Ryans ending statement was great

Could you do the death of Marilyn Monroe

I did a presentation on Van Gogh yesterday and said almost everything you guys said but I was so nervous that I started stuttering. You guys did it much better

Omg they’d be so good doing the caylee Anthony murder case

He gave it to a sex worker to give to Paul Gauguin. It was for Paul

it's said van GOFF not van GO

his last name is said like “Gof”

The Dutch in me is screaming "that is not how you pronounce it!!!!"

Is it just me or does the thumb nail of Vincent look like dr strange

Cool video, loved it as always.... my vote is it was suicide but


some people don't plan out there suicide. sometimes they just do it because they've had enough. because they can. and sometimes after a failed suicide attempt, you feel guilty and get cold feet. I think this is just a case of a troubled artist who was ready to go

No one paints like Gaston No one sucks up to Van Gogh like Gaston No one accidentally shoots Van Gogh like Gaston

Whether the boys accidentally shot him or if he did it to him himself , one thing is for sure... he longed for death. _"The sadness never ends"_

All I have to say is 15:53

Honestly this is the only buzz feed channel humanity can stand to watch

hello doctor who fans. who else is sobbing nsjsjsjs

You guys could do the disappearance of Lauren Spierer, or the unsolved death of Lauren Agee.

Am I the only person who found this boring and a waste of an episode

thumbnail looks like Benedict cumberbatch

'If I am worth anything later, I am worth something now. For wheat is wheat, even if people think it is a grass in the beginning.' He wrote this in one of his letters to Theo and honestly, it's such an inspiring quote from the sad end of a genuinely kind and inspirational and tragic man. He loved his faith, nature, his brother and nephew, the everyday lives of his neighbors, even potentially the boys who may have taken his life. For all his paintings produced while being treated for just over a year, imagine what he could have accomplished with a full lifetime of treatment and artistry, if not for the bullet that took his life. Depression and mental illnesses do not cause great art; trauma does not create poetry or great works of fiction. Humans make art despite trauma and illness, as a way of processing emotions that our language can't give words to. You don't need to be tortured to be an artist. You are an artist if you make art. The fact that his greatest paintings were created while he was in treatment speaks to that. Regardless of how he died, his life speaks measures about how we as a society need to have a discussion about art, mental health, treatment, and stigmatization.

awww :(( i actually cried what a sweet dude

Vincent Van Goghnad

You should do one about the men in the lead masks, I can’t wait for season 6!!!!!!

Pls do the Burari family mass suicide case.

I know its late but my theory goes like this: Vincent went to the field to paint, in which was actually intended for suicide. When he was about to do it, he changed his mind and threw the gun but the friction on impact shot the bullet. This theory kinda fits with the speculation (aside the equipment missing) But we may never know.... #truecrime cant even pronounce his name right. im done

how about chris benoit murder-suicide crime?

I despise buzzfeed. But i like this.

"Look how red his face is getting. Hehehehohoho. Look at the tear.

Finally understood Don McLean's Vincent. What happened that day, we do not know still. Perhaps we never will.

ohhhhhh if comments are also where we can put requests,,, dude i'd LOVE to see u guys' research on ambrose bierce's disappearance

You guys should watch the Van Gogh documentary starring willem Dafoe. It’s called At Eternity’s Gate, and it includes significant elements and relationships of his life that were not mentioned in your description of his life. the film also includes his death depicted as theory 2 of this video

paddy moriarty disappearance


How do you find direct quotes of van gough claiming his preferred way of suicide was drowning

Have they done an episode on Connie Converse yet?

The most common belief is he went into a field and shot himself with the canvas behind him. Therefore the blood would hit the canvas and it would be the last art piece.

i saw benedict cumberbatch in the thumbnail

Do an episode on the unsolved mystery of Michael Jackson’s death

I started my apprenticeship at 14

maybe he asked someone to shoot him, so assisted suicide?

Ya it is heartwarming

9:58 hands down the best moment of buzzfeed unsolved to date, dont @ me

The guy in the thumbnail looks like shane


People had so much to say about the supposed "rat's nest" atop Ryan's head; Y'all done made him bring out the Shoop Da Whoop Swoop. Not an improvement.

Edgar Allan Poe tragic story please

Vincent looks like Benedict Cumberbatch in the tumbnail.

You should cover the death of Meriwether Lewis (he was the Lewis in Lewis and Clark)!! Long thought to be a suicide, there's evidence that it was actually a murder!

Van Gogh puffalo pill boom roasted ha ha

Do a episode on smoke dawg

Do one about the Malaysia Airline MH 270.

I will say from bleakness you can dream. Ive tired to kill myself 7 times. Can you belive that? I feel like the biggest failure in history.

session 2

you should do Kurt Cobain next

*1853?!?! I thought he was born in like the 1500’s

do curt cobain

My theory is : the sex worker did it

Its actually been debated that Vincent did not cut his ear off but a friend did in a sword fighting incident and they just decided to say Vincent cut his own ear off to keep his friend from jail.

My theory is, Vincent asked his brother to shoot him. Theo doing what his brother wished, helped him “one last time”. So while Vincent walked back to the inn, Theo went to hide the gun and went back to be by his brothers side!

Y’all should do a video looking into the mysterious death of Kendrick Johnson.

Most people do not leave a suicide note, that's a common misconception. It often happens suddenly and may very well be due to very "unlogical" reasons. So that alone does not rule out a suicide at all.

Gogh is pronounced goff

Remember, he had mental illness. Someone who would not like him or if he had to pay on old debt, he could have been shot then convinced he killed himself.

I thought at 9:56 “Now i understand” was a reference to Vincent by Don McLean. Ig it wasn’t tho :/

WHO STOLE TIMMY'S BALL?? My husband's stepsister drowned and was revived. She said after the initial burning in your lungs, it becomes very pleasant. Also, that was very satisfying high five.

The editing makes it so creepy...

why van gogh gotta be looking like benedict cumberbatch in the thumbnail thO or is it just me

You guys are so funny

You should make an episode about Tom Thomson (another artist with a very mysterious death)

I would kill to see y’all visit Zach bagans haunted museum if y’all haven’t

I was skeptical, but good theory! The only thing I wonder is what he was intending to paint if he went over to the boys with all that painting equipment...

Apprenticeships are pretty common for high school students, sometimes even middle schoolers. You can also be a medical intern in hospitals shadowing doctors and surgeons or even a paid intern doing lab work at as young as 14-16(depending on your school/ the hospital) or become a cna at 14 and work in hospitals or nursing homes, most of the people who work in the nursing homes are actually students.

I'm curious how psychiatric hospital were during his time.


15:42 my favorite parts

You left out him painting on the day he shot himself

I am in aarles right now!! Wow that's a nice episode


Stick with the facts. The cutesy chit chat is tiring

'Bully Boy'

Can’t wait til these guys are like 80

where are my Dutchies at?!?!?!?!

his brother is an angel that made me so emotional

There was also a story that he got into a duel with Gauguin and lost his ear that way, but they hushed it up - possibly over a woman or something else. They said he never lost his whole ear either.

You should do the death of Canadian artist, Tom Thomson

Would it have killed you to look up the correct pronounciation

I think that picture proves that Van Gogh was at least 4% Neanderthal.

No guys. Him and Gauguin had beef.

When you go Ghost hunting just use fu@#$&% Snapchat and see if there is a face anywhere

teenage boys are the worst

murder in the wheat field

In England u have to be in education until 18 So some do apprenticeships

I just went to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. My favorite things were his sketches. They are just so different from his painting style and still absolutely amazing.


Nobody: Me waiting for the manikin in the back of the room to move every episode: ( ͡°╭͜ʖ╮͡° )

What if someone killed him for his supplies

9:57 now I understand what you tried to say to me how you suffered for your sanity how you tried to se them free Vincent (starry starry night)

You should do an episode on Adnan Syed!


Looks like Benedict Cumberbatch in the thumbnail.



Waitttttt have i been saying his name wrong the entire time. I say van gof not go if that makes sense

You should talk about Michael Jackson, like about what really happen and how he died

Excuse me please elaborate on the letters on his desk that he "surely didn't want anyone to read" because what kind of dirty stuff was in those??

Thank you guys for doing this episode. Van Gogh is my favorite, I just graduated from college and my thesis was on him! Thanks for showing the world the theory I’ve always believed! Read Deborah Heiligman’s Vincent and Theo for more evidence it was the boys, that Vincent loved life and was actively making plans for the future, something people planning Suicide don’t do, and more ballistic evidence it was impossible for him to have done it. Also the book reviews how he didn’t cut off his own ear, it was probably his drunken friend and he covered for him too.

Why is Benedick cumberbatch on ur thumbnail


The cases are getting boring

ugh I'm so annoyed with the way they pronounce Gogh

Do a vid about the russian sleep Experiment

Could he have been robbed?

i bet that he gave someone his art supplies and in return they’d shoot him

i would love if they would tackle on the execution of the romanov family

I hope his innocent soul rests in peace:(

That one person in the 19th century.: Bro my boy vin vin should famous

You guys should do the “Suicide” of Kurt Cobain

( *wheeze* )

You should’ve done a video on the colmenares case. It’s pretty interesting.

Ryan and Shane should do a episode on marilyn monroe

his whole story is so sad tho :/

I think you guys are forgetting that people in the 1800s lived for like a lot less time then they do now. Probably like 50 or 60 years...

You guys should do Maurice ward or Jan sloot

You should do the story of the Egyptian actor soaad Hosny, That'll be real interesting!

PLEASE cover the death of Kurt Cobain!


That awkward moment when you realize that you have been watching UNSOLVED for a longer than you have spent on any work.


15:54 the smallest "look at the tears!" ive ever heard


I started watching this then realized it was buzzfeed and I can’t take it seriously as their credibility is non-existent

I buy the 2cd theory. It makes so much more sense. I think they actually solved a case

But... didn’t he have a conflict with one of his comrades, leading to the severing of his ear after a fight

this week on buzzfeed unsolved we investigate the planet as part of our ongoing investigation into the question, is the earth flat?

3:09 Thats what HE said

will they keep making more seasons to unsolved? these episodes are the only thing keeping me sane

This season flue by

Vans did a Van Gogh collection and I have the almond blossom ones

Season 6 : The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann

#roastmortem Ryan tried to make his hair as tall as possible to see if he could reach Shane's height. Unfortunately, Shane saw right through this scheme & made his hair even taller, reaching impossible heights. When will little Ryan reach the stars? #loveyouryan #letryanbetall

(soft patting)

16:34 - 17:15 YESS

15:40 - 16:02 is my everything


I had heard he was covering for a friend because they had an illegal duel over a woman.

"Oh yea, getting shots in the plans today" I died

I hated everything buzzfeed ever made, except this, you guys are alright.

I think that it could've been a mugging or some kind of cover up. Vincent always had mental health issues and one time in the institution he was so confused he ate some of his oil paints. so maybe he was mugged and shot and then became confused and just said that he shot himself. or maybe one of his friends shot him (he didn't always get along with Gauguin and there are some theories that Gauguin cut Vincent's ear off and Vincent covered it up because he didn't want his friend to be in trouble) and he covered it up by saying his shot himself.

Can you do the Springfield 3

that manniquen in the back really scares me

please go to Manteno State Hospital (the psych ward and tuberculosis hospital)

Dude that'd be so fucked if Vincent's brother killed him for his paintings (as they were good!) And the innkeeper was in on it!!

when are you guys gonna be back with your Supernatural episodes?

*Since you didn’t say it, there are actually two rumors. One, that his asylum room had a window and that’s how he painted starry night. Two, his room had no window and he painted from memory and imagination.*

10:35 honestly a mood

Please do the devils tramping ground

There is a famous robbery in sweden where a helicopter landed on the roof of a building. The criminals went in and later left with something like 4 000 000 €. The case is still unsolved and when you look in to the story it gets quite interesting. In swedish newspapers this case is called "hellikopterrånet" (helicopterrobbery)

Imagine doing all this work and then not looking up how to pronounce van Gogh.

wait why does vincent look like benedryl comderdatch in the thumbnail

Lmao bully boy

When I was 9 I remembered the teacher saying van gough cut off his ear for his cousin Kate. They probably lied.

Man van gogh ain't no snitch

Can you guys talk about the Colmenares caseeeeee pleaseeeeeee

Fun fact, Van Gogh may have NOT cut off his own ear, instead, his lover Paul Gauguin did during argument. The two were both alcoholics and abusive towards each other, Paul could have threatened Vincent with a knife during a drunken rage and sliced off the tip of his ear. There is no evidence to prove that Vincent ever sent the ear to the prostitute, or that he was even in contact with her at the time. Paul and Vincent continued their relationship even after the event. The portrait of Van Gogh with the bandage over his ear was in fact a gift for Paul, when they were living separately they would exchange self portraits as presents (Gauguin was also a painter). Van Gogh took the blame for his injury, telling people that he did it during a mental breakdown to insure that Paul did not get prosecuted, as they did have a deep love for each other, despite how her vile dysfunctional the relationship was. The story of how he cut off his own ear is merely a romanticized myth to cover up an abusive relationship and to escape prison time.

Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) Don McLean Starry starry night Paint your palette blue and gray Look out on a summer's day With eyes that know the darkness in my soul Shadows on the hills Sketch the trees and the daffodils Catch the breeze and the winter chills In colors on the snowy linen land Now I understand What you tried to say to me How you suffered for your sanity How you tried to set them free They would not listen they did not know how Perhaps they'll listen now Starry starry night Flaming flowers that brightly blaze Swirling clouds in violet haze Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue Colors changing hue Morning fields of amber grain Weathered faces lined in pain Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand Now I understand What you tried to say to me How you suffered for your sanity How you tried to set them free They would not listen, they did not know how Perhaps they'll listen now For they could not love you But still your love was true And when no hope was left inside On that starry starry night You took your life as lovers often do But I could have told you Vincent This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you Starry starry night Portraits hung in empty halls Frameless heads on nameless walls With eyes that watch the world and can't forget Like the strangers that you've met The ragged men in ragged clothes The silver thorn of bloody rose Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow Now I think I know What you tried to say to me How you suffered for your sanity How you tried to set them free They did not listen, they're not listening still Perhaps they never wil

18:55 shane almost said clownboy. yeehonk


Vincent Van Gogh faked his death and is still alive. Proof below.

I love that awkward pat on the shoulder lol

"Vincent had Theo Theo died alone that day"

Poor Van Gogh. The man was shunned and bullied just because he was different but all he wanted was to pursue what he loved and give joy back to others! And maybe somehow support himself through that but couldn't. Kudos to him for following his heart and still being kind, humble towards others. I can seriously relate to that as a artist, I know it's a very difficult line of work to go into thus why I stopped going for that dream but still draw on the sideline for myself. The sad truth is we as humans tend to fear of what we don't understand. Van Gogh was different in many colors and shapes but he wasn't bad, he still kept his head up high and walked the distance. Searched for what his purpose was in life while doing what he loved even though people saw him as strange or crazy. I did not know much about Gogh as a child just knew what he was famous for but now watching this I will research more about this wonderful amazing man and other famous artist.

I think vincent told the kids to shoot him to finish his art so the blood would go on the paintings finishing them

If anyone’s interested in this story more in depth, the movie “ at eternity’s gate” came out earlier this year and is the story of Van Gogh from his point of view

Do Kurt Cobain next!!

*Can you do an episode of my pizza? It went missing this morning*

Oml jack warner

For me I never believed it was a suicide nor did I think he actually cut his ear off.... Anybody else?

i’m crying right now

why tf does van gogh look like burndict cucumberbatch in the thumbnail

in england we can start apprenticeships at 16..

Next video will legit be a true crime investigation on how James Charles’ career was murdered

Only thing keeping buzzfeed alive

taehyung (somehow) is gonna watch this

#postmortum #betterlatethennever. When I was watching this with my fiancé, it hit me that the photo of Vincent looks strikingly like Nick Groff from Paranormal Lockdown. Lol!

Could you make this a podcast? I think it would amazing

15:53 I'm laughing so hard I've been crying for a week

has there evr been a mystery tht HAS been solved on here???????? lol

I think it’s an xxxtentacion thing where he wanted to kill himself but hated the idea of self harm. Maybe he asked someone to kill him or got murdered and saw it as a good thing and didn’t want the person that shot him to get introuble


Germany still practices Apprenticeships too

Can we get a Kurt cobain one

Lol why is benedict cumberpatch in the thumbnail

Aw man, this makes me sad.

I am not a 100% sure but I think he cut his ear after a fight with his friend as an apology for nearly stabing him.

Omh please do Edgar Allen po

Please do a vidoe about Edgar Allen Poe!

his lover cut off his ear, would have been deported if that fact was known.. so he claimed to have done it himself. that is your murderer.

Random nerd : AcTualLy van gogh cut his lower earlobe not the full ear I am not saying any random things this is true he really cut his lower earlobe than the ear itself

The thumbnail looked like Benedict Cumberbatch

Edgar Allan Poe next, please.

why does he look like Benedict Crumblepatch

A .380 is really tiny round to try and kill yourself with.

I have a lot in common with old Vinny, debilitating mental health issues...…… mainly just that actually.

the guy in the painting looks like benedict cumberbatch wtf

He looked like Dr. Strange

But Vincent mentioned a revolver not a pistol

The way Vincent can joke about suicide is just so relatable

The pied piper

Please, someone at Buzzfeed, please steal the mannequin in the back that always shows up behind Shane's head

van gogh reminds me on benedryl pumpkinpatch

as a huge van gogh fan i found this really interesting. i love his works and i cried when i got to see starry night in person. he was such a talented artist who sadly wasn't appreciated in his time. i still believe that he was a tortured genius, but seeing this makes me question the idea that he took his own life. if the boys shot him as theorized, it just goes to show what a kind empathetic man he was.

Still waiting for a new episode of the supernatural series.

Do Edgar Allan Poe next season


Immediately pronounces his name wrong

You should do the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell.

You should do an episode on the Franklin expedition

I love the painting effects done on the sky in the photos.

14:44-14:52 A complete summary of the BSA


y’all should check out carie jacob bonds

Good video but I'm disappointed in buzzfeed for spreading misconceptions about suicide. Most people who commit suicide do not leave a note and you often cannot tell if a person is suicidal.

Prolly his brother shot him bc he wanted his art or sumthing then Vincent didn’t want his bro to get in trouble so he said he did it

I think he had someone do it or it was accidental!

Do an Unsolved on Venus Xtravaganza. Famous for being in the documentary Paris is Burning. showing life and struggles of Ballroom Culture and the black and Latino LGBTQI community. She was murdered in the 80s and it's still unsolved. The police tried claiming a "John" (men who seek prostitutes and escorts) murdered her but a lot of people have reason to believe that it was a Cop or a killer who deliberately target trans women and prostitutes. The reason why it's not major news is because back then LGBT people were discriminated alot more harshly than today and people used the HIV and Aids outbreak as justification for violence and murder I think it would be great for you guys to use your platform to do a story on her and her legacy. Especially considering that Transwoman today still are being murdered for simply existing

Could you cover the death of Venus Xtravaganza? Her death is a complete mystery.

I did it

Every Buzzfeed Unsolved Video Ever- We have evidence and a motive for this murder Viewers- So it’s solved? Ryan and Shane- Well yes, but actually no

The John dillinger conspiracy next!

i enjoyed this episode so much

the best art ive made came when i was in a dark place. i dont know why but the portraits just come out differently - the skill is from intense emotions and its really therapeutic.

Maybe it was somebody he payed too kill him? He gave his ear to a sex worker maybe he made a sex worker shoot him.

Why do they say his name like that? It's not Van Gō it's more like Van Gogh like in hot

Can you cover the death of The Adventurers Of Superman actor George Reeves ?

Ryan: talks about Billy's ball New Subscribers:

Hi everyone, i am new here and im thinking of making a request. You guys know the amityville house, can we request them to stay in that house for 30 days. Prove that the demon is still lurking there. I dont know, maybe it requires lots of time, but it might be worth it. They never captured solid evidence that could prove the demon's existence anyway.

Whatever happened to Ruining History? Anymore seasons of that coming?

Irah Camid ooh, that’s a good suggestion.

Guys, this murder that happened in my city really messed me up and is still unsolved after 10 years, please take your time to consider this! She was my childhood friend.

How about the Villisca Axe Murder Story

y Vincent van gogh look like Benedict Cumberbatch

DEA agent Kiki camarena

what if his brother killed him so he would not have to support him anymore

Why’s there a gun in the picture

Hello guys, love the show, you to investigate the death of Luis Andres Colmenares It left me very confused :(

You should talk about lavena Johnson!!!!

he only cut off his earlobe tho

Do the Abraham Lincoln room in the White House

@BuzzfeedUnsolved Can an episode be about Agatha Christie's disappearance?

He’s thanos he said “it’s inevitable”

What do we know about theo though? Maybe his brother couldn’t pay vincent anymore and killed him out of emotion


Pls make a kurt cobain unsolved story

Nobody: Shane and Ryan: (wheeze)

Empathy must be a newer invention. God, I feel so sad for Vincent. All he wanted was models to paint, and people just dismissed him.

Oh no my poor baby Vincent

Do a video about Walt Disney rumored to be frozen

bruh the editing ppl outdo themselves every single time huh

did he really eat paint

why have teenage boys been toxic from day one??

Hey Ghoulians...... Watch Top 9 Scary Buzzfeed Unsolved Supernatural moments here

all hail the watcher

Mystery aside, the editing on this video is so on point.

shane being shook about apprenticeships when like half my yeargroup left my school 4 apprenticeships


Ryan: talks about Timmy's ball New Subscribers:

Why does Vincent look like Nicolas Cage?

I think vincent van Gogh, hired or told someone to shoot him

Good video

Does anyone know when the next season starts i discovered them two days before this video and I’ve binge watched everything. I need more

There was a movie about this! It’s called Loving Vincent and it has really nice visuals :)

Do Marilyn Monroe and Edgar Allan Poe!!! Please!!!

is it just me or the drawing in the thumbnail look like Benedict Cumberbatch?


or maybe he asked somehow to shoot him.

Make one about binigno aquino jr.

did anyone else think Van Gogh was in the 1500s and not the late 1800s?? lol

It always take the public (and the rich people who'll buy the art) a while to get used to any new style of art--until these days they'll dub anything art. I always wondered if VVG was poisoning himself through the art supplies he used. When I painted (back several lifetimes ago), I'd routinely stick the brushes full of paint in my mouth to make it easy for me to find them fast, I'd have paint, various oils, turpentine, etc, on my hands when I'd pick up a sandwich my roommate would leave for me because I would work for 2-3 days straight stopping only to pee.

The only buzzfeed videos worth watching

Jennifer Fergate article-

Jennifer Fergate's mysterious death in Oslo would be an interesting case for u guys to cover

The only bit of buzzfeed I like.

Hey buzzfeed do malaysia flight 370

Please cover “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”

Omg guys this is why in the doctor who episode after they showed him his art in the Musee d'Orsay there weren't any new paintings! When they went back Amy thought there'd be tons more paintings but there wouldn't have been more paintings if he didn't kill himself! If he was killed then it wouldn't have changed anything!

He was going to commit toaster bath

Do the Casey Anthony case!!!

I'm so annoyed he did not scut off his own ear it was cut off in a duel come on

You should do the Madeline Mcann Case

It's high time you covered that Dancing plague of 1518 you guys have mentioned over six times the past seasons


It wasn’t a sex worker, she was a maid at the brother. Due to her having a accident with a dog attack, they had to iron her face which made her disfigured. He felt extreme sympathy with her and he wanted to do something special for her


15:38 bully boyy hahaahaha

It’s actually pronounced like “van ‘goff’” rather than “van Go”

Dame y’all just started season 5

What?? No theories involving Gaugain??

@buzzfeed unsolved network Please do an episode of Bob Woolmer's murder, and Noida's double murder. They are two of the most intruiging unsolved murder mystery ever

can you do the beth doe case??

I can totally understand why he would have taken his supplies with him if he was going to kill himself. I don't think that's a weird thing at all.

Everyone should watch Loving Vincent. It’s an amazing movie that covers his death

Why the thumbnail look like benedict cumberbatch

Nobody: Vincent: "Puffalo Pill" Rene: *shots the gun*

Do a episode on Amy Dunne!!!

u'll understand it when u go through a major depressive won't be that scary at all

Puffalo Pill was a murderer, pass it on!

He was killed, accidentially or intentionally. Then the suspects disposed of the art supplies and the gun. Seems so obvious

Ryans so fkn cute anyone agree or is it just me

Um.. just go watch 'At eternity's gate'

If you’re a fan of unsolved please join my new subreddit called UnsolvedBoys where we discuss theories and anything unsolved!

U should do Marilyn Monroe’s death

I think positive emotions are easier to share with people close to you than negative emotions. Or you get sick of sharing negative emotions with others, and you're more likely to turn to an outlet for this emotions

I have to say, I've learned many a fascinating and heartwarming fact about Vincent Van Gogh. Him sending a painting he did for his newborn nephew has to be my new favorite thing about him now.

There is one more theory I've heard which is Vincent was in a fight with fellow artist because of which he cut his ear. Later his brother was not being able to send him art supplies because of his financial issues Vincent in the asylum painted starry night after which he was released but no one really cared about his art. Because of depression he then sucided in his bedroom at his own house. -this is a theory I've alwayssss heard



I don’t remember this part from art class

And if your going to kill yourself why would you shoot yourself in the abdomen and not in the head

Idk if I’m too late but #postmortem This is so sad, but I think it’s probable that Renee purposely shot Vincent. Sometimes children get irrationally angry and do things in the heat of the moment. Just a thought.

You guys should play the midnight game to see if it’s real or fake....or unsolved!

Idk why this episode has got me feeling so sad

why did this come up when i searched the office

Vincent Van *WHO?!*

I don’t believe 380 caliber bullets were around in 1890?

I love that at the end they're kinda like "awww, he got murdered"

Would love to see these guys cover the disappearance of Madeline McCann

Why not do the amityville house murders and haunting. I’ve watched the movies and they always say “based on a true story” but nobody ever points out some people associated with the story’s admitted to lying.

Hi! Could you guys please do a video about Straight Inc?!

I am Dutch, and can not imagine a way were a Dutch accent would make a b sound like a p..... We can say buffelo bill. There are people here named bill. Maybe he made fun of him on purpose. Also if the boys teasing usually made him 'angry', I really don't think he would cover for them if they mortally wounded him. I consider myself to be a pretty kind and compassionate person, and honestly if some one would hurt me like that I think even I would tell what happened.

Fact: Vincent Van Gogh painted a land portrait in which he was going to kill himself, he shot himself but missed the heart and was found in pain and agony by a man who rushed him to the hospital. He died of his wounds soon after that.

did anyone else know that their entire supernatural series is featured on Hulu? or am i really late to the show? i just found out and i’m so proud (,:

Over here in Europe the youngest you an apply for an apprenticeship is 14 I believe

My house has a ghost that plays a toy piano. No joke.

Why is this only being solved now? Like, in the earlier years, couldn't have pointed out the evidence in the letters???

Do one about Ted bundy I wanna see that lowkey

Lola Drake No, it’s not. That’s the British pronunciation. In Dutch it’s a throaty g sound.

I am from India please cover the case of Arushi Talwear. It was a national news.

You should do the Alphabet murders from the 70's in Rochester New York.

Please do Kurt Cobain.

Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Going Vincent Van Gone

ryan: i did think about that but i dont think so

yall should do one on Pac or biggie that'd be dope!!

To be honest Vincent van Gough on the front looks like Benedict cumberbatch

Is there no theory that he could have got robbed on the way to the field and that's why he didn't he have his equipment after he got shot

the death of len bias

Can you guys make an unsolved video on hitler... (NOT A JOKE)!!!

Who put Bella in the Witch Elm?


I think it was the brother...

Despite all of the jokes this was pretty sad.

benedict cumberbatch?

You guys should cover The disappearance of Jim Thompson the silk king! Very interesting how he went missing in Malaysia’s rainforest . That would be amazing

I agree with the conclusion at end but it also says to me , chose your friends wisely , or ya can get shot

petition to bring back buzzfeed unsolved: supernatural

When is the new ep dropping??

I'm asking the same thing

How do they sleep like whaa

I went to the asylum in France where Van Gogh was. It was very very beautiful

Painter: *uses cheap gear to make a detailed mural* Me: I don’t speak BAROQUE.... Painter: .... Me: don’t CHALK it up to be a bigger deal than it is

My theory is that Vincent stole Rene’s gun and when he tried to get it back from him, he accidentally pulled the trigger when he pulled it towards him. I don’t know. It makes sense to me. Love the show boys. Keep it up. Lots of Love from Malta #postmortem

You all should look into Bunny Man Bridge in Virginia!

One day they are going to solve a crime or murder and it will be f*cking amazing

Y'all should do 'The Alice Killings' it's really interesting

Season finale?! You what

It's possible he asked someone else to shoot him. That could explain why he was so adamant to blame himself and that there was no one else involved etc.

I think that you would find the yogzte case interesting as it yet to be solved

The disappearance of Kelly Bergh-Dove

they should do Madeleine McCann next. her disappearance is still a mystery

So did theo s business work well?

can you do marilyn monroe? please it would be so interesting

I bet he was drugged then told he wanted to kill him self

You guys should look into the case of Martha Jean Lambert! @buzzfeedunsolved

please tell me why I’m watching this at night

With theory 1, he probably brought his art supplies with him because they were is pride and joy. He then being consumed with grief of his brother, yes would have driven him to committing suicide. In the wheat field, well, most of his paintings were of outside- nature; is possible that's where he felt comfortable and knew that no one would be around. Shooting himself would have been very awkward, probably causing his hand to jolt because of the force of the gun, causing the bullet to leave a hole but more than likely to have skimmed his skin and head in the ground. The sound and pain would have shaken Van Goh out of his mental state and he throw the gun in shock. The wheat field would have been far so walking could have taken up to 2.5hours max. The revolver, he could have bought it while on his previous travels around Europe.

I am Vincent Van Gogh kin

I ship Ryan and Shane like FedEx

I want them to do one about the man from taured. I don't know why but I just do

Question: was the painting gear ever found?

Y'all should check out The Magnoila Hotel in Seguin, TX for the paranormal unsolved series.

Do an episode on the Jenny Lin murder in Castro Valley CA

*i wonder if they have a broken back from carrying the whole of buzzfeed*

I think he asked his brother to shoot him. That would explain the distance of the shot. He brought his art supplies so he could paint with his blood but the brother took it with him so there wasn't any evidence. Then he walked back.

Doctor Who has fucked this up for me, I cry anytime I hear anything about Van Gogh :'/

oh the things they never told me in art class...

Van Gogh always bums me out but I love that dude hope he’s happy roaming and painting up in the clouds

Make something about the Footballplayer Sala that went down in January this year with his plane

for a new supernatural season y’all should go to griffith park.

Why does Van Gogh looks like Benedict Cumberbatch in the thumbnail?

maybe Vinnie had a proclivity for young boys? maybe this is the reason for the tormenting by them

The disappearance of etan patz

Could you make a video on the Hinterkaifeck Murders?

I’m 16 and I got a film apprenticeship so ....

Do Amy Mihaljevik next please

Ryan :“this story definitely paints him in a different picture” Me: *wheeze*

Has anyone ever considered that Van Gogh's paintings *WERE* his suicide letter? The thing about art is it's open to interpretation, but what we will never know is what a piece of art means and represents to the person who created it.

Buzzfeed I love your unsolved mysteries and my art teacher always talk about him

I think that maybe being in the asylum and recieving treatment allowed him to start his recovery, which is why he was able to produce the art that he did. Thanks for discussing the notion about art and mental health!

europe has apprenticeships at 15

Listening to this version I became a little sad. He thought about the welfare of the boys before his own. To think his life was ended by a 13 year old D-bag.

WHO PUT BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM? is a fun case to research.

I was busy w exams I missed this

How bout the death of Pepsi Paloma from ph?


PurplePhantom Fairy I agree

But why did he give his ear to that woman?

Who realized Ryan has a *(wheeze)* on his cup

Is there going to be a supernatural season 6? If so, any rough idea when? Please, it's my drug. I can only rewatch every episode so many times, it's getting sad.

What if Vincent Van Gogh took the gun from the boys to “see it” and shot himself Don’t play with guns kids!

I was under the impression he never actually cut his own ear off entirely. I read he was injured in a duel but as these were then outlawed he removed what was left of his ear so as to protect himself from the law therefore also saving the person he duelled with. Is it possible that this gun shot was a result of a rematch??

While curators at the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam stand by the theory of self-mutilation, Kaufmann argues that Van Gogh dropped hints in letters to his brother, Theo, once commenting : "Luckily Gauguin ... is not yet armed with machine guns and other dangerous war weapons."

Why do I feel like Theo killed Vincent

Can you (bullrat) do the case of the dream man

You should do an Episode on Count Saint Germain and the whole immortal vampire thing

Buzz feed unsolved; who stole timmy's ball?

Bobo Shinn!

“I’ll put this on somethin’ you put somethin’ in front of me I’ll put it to it.”

They should cover Marilyn Monroe's death and everything surrounding it. I loved the video❤️

Mmmmmmmm,mmmmmmmmmmm,,mmmmmmmmmm!!!! Good !! Lmfao

Literally nobody: Ryan: *pats*

U guys should go on NeTfLiX

Can you please do a Buzzfeed Unsolved on the Waco siege/compound? love you guys

Please do the missing persons case of Madeline McCann!!

Do you ever think that after a video recorded about a killer Ryan turns around and see's the guy in the suit in the corner and gets scared?

Quote by Ryan in 15:20 "Teenage boys are the WORST" i am turning into a teenager in a few months

15:52 this voice sounds sssssoooooo familiar... And yet i found out it sounds like King Julian's cute assistant on Madagascar... Ps. By the way his name is Mort...

FUN FACT: Gogh was extremely depressed and once drank yellow paint because he thought it would make him happy, nearly dying from it, and therefore was not allowed into his painting studio until his mental state improved

You can do apprenticeship at 15 in france

His brother shot him for money

as merch you should sell the show on Blu-ray

Go to the golden lamb next

i honestly don't think it's suicide

*René, the Bully Boy*

They should do a video about Roger the doll.

this show is so cozy i love it so much

Hey can you do Selena Quintanilla please

Was this the last episode of the season?

Idk but some of his paintings scares me

you guys could make anything funny


You should look into covering the disappearance of child prodigy author Barbara Newhall Follett

Always has amazed me that the most famous and accomplished people all seems to have had a very miserable life. And what's with the Elvis do Ryan?

Vincent: Puffalo Pill Rene: *YOU JUST YEE'D YOUR LAST HAW*

For people who are interested in more, watch the movie 'Loving Vincent' it is beautifully made and gives many perspectives on his death. I believe he was murdered. The shot/angle of the shot doesn't add up with a suicide. He seemed like such a sweet man and this is so sad to me to learn even more about.

U should do the kidnapping and the murder of amber hagerman

Vincent Van Gogh is soo kind despite his mental health, job loss, and all of the bullying. He is very selfless. I aspire to be kind like him.

Am I the only one who saw the train with a smiley face?

Shane and Ryan are the only members of Buzzfeed that I love to watch. Their show is the best by far.

You guys should do rebecca zahau case

Hello Buzzfeed Unsolved! For the next season of Unsolved True Crime/Supernatural, can you feature 'The Missing Panama Girls'?It's an unsolved mystery too and although it isn't as famous as the other ones, it sure is creepy! Can't wait for more great content coming from all of you guys. Great work!

When I was little my mom always told me the vincent kill him self by shooting himself in the ear..... I HAVE BEEN WRONG MY WHOLE LIFE ;-;

Can you guys do Edward Mordrake next please?

I know this is an unsolved mystery channel but can you solve one thing my Rubik’s Cube?

Vincent: If I am KILLED by some murderer, DO NOT PROSECUTE THAT MURDERER because HE caught ME slipping! That is on me!

I love ur guys videos

Do 9/11

I want that mug that says “(wheeze)”

Could you please make an episode about the dissapearence of Agatha Christie?


You should do a video over 9/11

When's the next season?

I, personally, would like to believe that he didn't commit suicide. It feels really hopeless when all of the mentally ill famous people end up committing suicide, so sometimes it feels like there is no other way for a mentally ill person's life to end other than suicide. I know that obviously isn't true, but it would be much more hopeful that he made such an incredible impact on the world as a mentally ill person without killing himself

Dang, I'm only half way through Naifeh and Smith's The Life, what a spoiler alert. Van Gogh is such an incredible artist and person in general. Naifeh and Smith's book is definitely worth the read!

Vincent was far from a nice guy. He was basically mentally insane and would grope women and snap at people. Literally no one liked him and he thought himself as a failure. I studied him in art.

The way they described this is completely different to how the Van Gogh museum explained it

I've been thinking about Doctor Who this whole video

In the beginning of the video when Ryan was narrating, he said that when Vincent returned from the fields, the inn keeper and guests were outside because it was a warm evening, which is when they saw him come back without his things, but later during the theory part of the video Adeline Ravoux, the daughter of the inn owner, said that Vincent fell asleep in the field but the coolness wake him up... before it was warm but she said it was cool, maybe it’s colder in the fields, or she might have been wrong about that?

It was the watcher

One thing I can definitely conclude from this, it is hard to find a brother like Theo.

Anyone else think the painting on the thumbnail looks like Benedict cumberbatch

My heart goes to Vincent Van Gogh. I believe he was a man with morals. And if these murder theories even bear one percent of the truth then I can only imagine how kind Vincent was to protect his supposed murderer because he thought it would eventually ruin their lives.

Do Edgar Allan Poe’s death

Have you heard of the disappearance of Ronny Valkenaar

Vincent got a friend to kill him and then take his art supplies. That’s probably why he said nobody was to blame but himself. He probably was just protecting his friend.

No one : Shane : *clap clap clap* look at the tears 15:54 the best bit

the lack of a suicide note shouldn’t be used as evidence against the suicide theory. many many people who sadly commit suicide don’t leave a note. it’s somewhat rare for people to leave a note.

Yes, but Van Gogh would be inclined to do so. He would write notes to his brother every single day (or weekish unsure) so it wouldnt be like him to not mention this to his brother or something of the sorts in a letter.

he only cut off a small part of his ear. not the entire thing. common misconception.


im betting you 10000$ that Shane will look like Tim Cook when he becomes old

Can y'all make an unsolved video of amber hagerman?

BuzzFeed, The fact Van Gough cut his ears was just factor to his suicide: The motivation for such an act of self-mutilation has evaded art historians for more than a century, though writer Martin Bailey claims to have finally found evidence as to his reasons (via The Guardian); stating that it was in fact inspired - not by his argument with Gaugin - but by the news that his brother Theo, who supported him closely both financially and emotionally, had become engaged.

pls do one on kurt cobain. pls?

I know y’all won’t read this but you should do the missing persons case about Monique Daniels and her family. It is so strange and interesting.

What if the sex worker that Van Gogh gifted his ear to killed/had someone kill him because she was tired of him being clingy (maybe) and he said it was suicide to protect her because he loved/was infatuated with her?

wait was this the season finale

As far as paranormal goes, you guys should go to Central State Hospital in Milledgeville, Georgia. From what I have heard, you have to get permission from the state in order to enter. I hope you guys see this and btw I love these vids.

Vincent van Gogh didn't cut off all of his ear

One of the most controversial theory about who could Jack The Ripper be is both Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin working together and there is actually some evidence including modern science tests backing it up. Vincent and Paul were supposed to be in a relationship where Vincent was very submisive to Paul who had a wide history of assault and kind of hatred towards women. Vincent was supposed to give his ear to a sex-worker Paul often visited for her services as begging her to leave Paul. Both dates of murders and dates of when Vincent+Paul were in London match and so does Vincent's handwriting with Jack The Ripper's handwriting. Not saying it has to be truth but would be worth to mention.

Ok. Buzzfeed is bad. But this part of Buzzfeed is good.

He had such a miserable life Poor Vincent


Van Gogh low-key looks like Benedict Cumberbatch in the thumbnail

Benedict Cumberbatch should portray Van Gogh. Thoughts?

lovely man .

I would just like to put up a wee reminder that Van Gogh’s main bulk of 150 paintings came from a place of recovery, not deep depression. He checked himself into the hospital and was getting better, which I sometimes think people can overlook.

My theory is that Theo killed him.

please do the kurt cobain case

The movie that just came out recently starring Willem Dafoe actually portrays this theory in a way! It's called At Eternity's Gate and it's worth a watch!!!

These guys give me a man boner.

r we just gonna ignore how the dude looks the benedict Cumberbatch i

Do the mysterious disappearance of Johnny Gosch. He’s a little boy who disappeared down the street from where I live now when my mom was a little girl. It was the biggest child abduction case to happen in all of Des Moines, Iowa.

4:51. She was not a sex worker, she worked at a brothel as a maid to pay off her hospital bills. Her name was Rachel

I think it was an assisted suicide

Oof yeeesss I’ve heard the one where boys shot him, both either accidentally or on purpose.

I want to see his face after CUTTING off his ear

The funny thing is if the thing about him covering the boys theory, if he didn't they'd legit get there heads chopped off.

What is Vincent never went to the wheat field.

“Bully Boy”

I was born the day Van Gogh died.... lol this is going to be a weird 21st birthday

Maybe his brother did it.

I’m relatable to Buffalo Bill. R u saying the my ancestors could have inspired the accidental death of Van Gogh… as an artist… I’m confused about how I feel

I’m in middle school and have MY life more planned out than my 22 year old brother

Can you go to the bilmore hotel or the stanly hotel

This really reminds me of Kurt Cobain's case. That would make an interesting episode...

bully boy is my new dream career

Just saying, I think the reason he didn’t leave a suicide note, and also brought his supplies with him was because he didn’t want everyone to worry about him

So sad that the teenage boys were bullying Van Gogh :(

If it's true then I'll smash my 'F' button till it's destroyed

Farrah - u preeeety

Who else here is Dutch? :)

this mystery pales in comparison to the mystery of the pronunciation of his name...

it's good to see the boys back. I re-subscribed.

If it was in fact suicide, why would he say "do not accuse anyone?.."

the man behind shane is creepy. was shane his name?

Every time I see Vincent’s self portrait all I can think about is how he much Benedict cumberbatch looks like him

He did not actually cut off his entire ear, he only cut off a part of it.

Do one of Kurt Cobain

Visit Kamloops Tranquille Sanatorium for paranormal investigation.

Did Ryan really straight up pronounce Parisian like Par-ee-see-an?

My personal theory is that Van Gogh left that day to go paint, then someone (man or woman) came to the fields with a gun and threatened Van Gogh that if he ran or told anyone that it was them he would hurt his brother or his nephew.

go watch The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh 60 Minutes

He died over one hundred years ago, yet they still find a way to make everything creepy. I’m currently in my room, with multiple blankets, and my light on. Why am I like this? Edit: I should not have watched this... I am now paranoid.

were never know but there is also a theory paul gauguin being a skilled sword fighter, cut van goghs ear off during a fight using his dueling sword. gauguin said van gogh threatened him with a knife when he wanted to leave but never admitted to hurting him.

I didn't know he died on my birthday

i love how they’re so descriptive. “(wHeezE)”

You guys should make an episode about Kurt Cobains suicide

I really enjoy Shane and Ryan pronouncing the Dutch Words

theres so many ghost towns in az, but you guys should really visit the Jerome Grand Hotel in Jerome. the hotel is extremely haunted, and Jerome is a big ghost town with an eerie atmosphere, the few times i have been there ive felt uncomfortable. its a really cool town but none the less its pretty creepy

Here is what I think, he took his supplies out to paint one last painting where he then hid it so that painting would be one for him and no one else, then he attempted to kill himself which he was unsuccessful in, now some people may think it is odd the fact that there was no note or anything, maybe the earlier said painting was his form of said suicide note idk that’s just what I think

Also maybe the reason for the distance of the gun and shallow hole along with the fact that he couldn’t get a gun, maybe he got someone to shoot him because maybe he still did not have the courage to do it himself, then he still didn’t kill himself but he didn’t want anyone to blame anyone else but it was a way with his morals to kill hinself

Art aren't supposed to be beautiful, it supposed to tell something.

Could you do Kurt Cobain's story next?

Hide this from Tae

You guys should look at the case of George stinney jr

If vincent van gogh was murdered the murderer probably said "I got to be like vincent and gogh.

I like Ryan's (Wheeze) mug. 1:40

nice haircut Ryan


Me: reads a book about Vincent and sees "he shot himself in the head then died" (duhh) and got buried next to his younger brother's grave Theo." (Theodore :p) Me again: **questions self** is it true? or is it a lie? *MAYBE I WILL NEVER KNOW* **and then sees a video about Vincent's death**

dit klinkt zo hard en serieus

Does anyone else wonder where Vincent’s ear is? Like there’s some museum somewhere like “aha look at this ear isn’t it wonderful”

Idk why but I read the title as “His Vincent van Death”

Do Madeline McCann

He apparently saw things/ saw the world differently that Enhanced his art

This is maby a crazy idee but can you guys go to amityvile

U should do hitlers story coz some people say he committed suicide or he was killed ??

So there are 2 Van Gogh's who are murdered?

What if.... after Van Gogh killed himself, someone simply stole the gun and the other art supplies. As in, during the all the commotion, someone could have easily stolen the stuff. Thus, the reason for the missing items.

I'm currently writing a story for LA and im basing it off you guys. What story should I do? I was thinking either goatman or mothman because you've already done stuff on it and I can just write it that something actually did happen. But i'm not really sure. Anyone have any suggestions on any stories on the supernatural I could put in the story? Could be one they've made a video on but it doesn't really matter. ((:

13:13 “At one point prior to his death” ... so literally whenever lol

This PAINTS his picture differently.

ryan the cockatoo

I know the Postmortem has been and gone but I think this is a valuable nugget of information. WHEN shooting yourself in the head at close range, the bullet simply goes in and kills you. The way to tell it was close range is telling off the burn marks around the entry hole. WHEN shooting yourself in soft tissue however, something completely different happens. The hot air that travels out the barrel following the bullet (which creates the burn mark on the head) tears through the tissue making a catastrophic mess and a wound size quadruple that of a wound created from a ranged gunshot. (P.S. if this wound would have been created, Van Gogh would have never been able to walk to his room as his bowls would be all over the floor.. so simply putting it, he was shot from range, because if he had shot himself in the abdomen he would have essentially disembowled himself). One simple postmortem on Van Gogh would tell if he was shot from close range or from range. The wound I'm talking about can be made from up to around 5cm away (suicide range). Tah Dah - sorry I was late to the party

BuzzFeed unsolved I love your videos

Y’all should do a video on the disappearance of William tyrell in Australia

“bully boy” i’m in *tears*

Its the sex worker who did it

why does he look like benedict cumberbatch on the thumbnail

I don't think Vincent's work at that moment in the asylum came from turmoil. I mean, yes, he was in a bad place, but he was also being treated. He made his best work while getting treatment for his depression, while fighting to get better.

Van Gogh was severely depressed and decided to eat yellow paint to be "pretty on the inside too" and the paint which was made with lead caused him to go crazy and therefore cut off his ear to send to his ex-girlfriend as a scary and quite gruesome way to get her back ...

I’m gonna show my mom this ep cause she’s obsessed with him

You guys know you're both millennials as well, right? - The millennial generation is born between 1981 and 1999, and you're both definitely not 38

please cover Arushi Talwar,s case!

Please next season do a unsolved for Kurt Cobain! I love all the theories and would love to hear you guys tell them!


That statue man behind Shane always scares me.

Will you guys cover The Disappearance of Martha Jene Lambert?

I came here just to see if they'd pronounce 'Van Gogh' correctly, since I have to this day never heard a non-native pronounce Vincent van Gogh's name right. Not only did the pronounce it 'Van Go', but they pronounced Zundert like 'Zundair'. I like mispronunciations.

You have cover the disappearance of Subhash Chandra Bose , Indian freedom fighter. Please.

1. Vincent had a bullet wound. Maybe dying by a gun wasn't a common suicide-preference as it is more painful/draggy than consuming poison or hanging? So it increases "murder suspicions". 2. Vincent mentioned in the past that "suicide" is against his religious beliefs and it's cowardly. This increases "murder suspicions" as well. Hence Vincent must've thought "If I don't let anyone know that this was my choice, then there would be more suspicions of me being murdered! I can't let that young boy with a bright future ahead be labelled a murderer cuz of a small mistake he did". Cuz Vincent had a heart of gold.

That is the way it is pronounced in Indian English. But yea, Ryan isn't an Indian.... =/

Van Gogh: Painted in Words. Benedict Cumberbatch played Vincent in that movie

Vincent: Puffalo Pill Rene: *YOU DONE JUST YEE'D YOUR LAST HAW BOY*

Vincent looks like Benedict Cumberbatch

Many believe van gogh was bipolar, which is why world bipolar day is on his birthday.

Highly recommend watching the Vincent Van Gogh episode of doctor who, which captures the true beauty and tragedy of his life.

What a story

why did puffalo pill make me laugh sm tf lmao

Taehyung would be sad if it was a murder

Van Gogh is a *GOAT!*

Can you do the disappearance of granger Taylor

What if he asked someone to kill him but unfortunately the shot wasn’t fatal right away so he woke up and decided to walk home and finish out his time there

Man Vincent that’s kinda kinky giving your ear to a sex worker

"Timmy's ball" ... Ohhhhhh I get it! I think.



Who is annoyed with "quote" and "end quote" thibg?

WTF! I screamed at 1:43 I thought it was a ghost

Honestly should do a BuzzFeed unsolved on the theives in BuzzFeed.
